*DEPRECATED* Apache Web Server for unRAID 6.2

The high memory usage has to do with how apache works and that it's the 64bit version. Apache requires one process per connection and depending on web browser many connection may be opened. Each module takes some memory and all are loaded with each process. The only thing you can do is try disabling some of the modules.  The ones I listed plus proxy and ssl if not needed. It's been awhile since I tried nginx. I can probably easily convert the plugin to an nginx version. It uses an evented model and will use a single worker process for many connections.

It looks like I am missing something here. I've installed the plugin (since I am trying to setup Virtualbox as well). After installing the plugin, I am unable to run any of the VM's, with message "Error:invalid argument: could not find capabilities for arch=x86_64 domaintype=(null)". Tested several times (install plugin / reboot /VMs not working - uninstall plugin / reboot / VMs working). Images attached... Any ideas?

Were you able to run them before install this plugin? Do you have vt-x or vt-d eneabled in the bios?

Unless you're actually running out of memory, I wouldn't worry too much.  Even if you stop apache the memory will still be cached but free for other programs to use.  I did test some settings to reduce the memory footprint of apache. You can try commenting out these modules in your httpd.conf. and any others that you don't need.

I am running out of memory.

 

After starting up Apache the memory footprint is very small (less than 10MB).

At what stage are the modules loaded? at Apache startup or only when needed by the specific web page?

If it is on startup then it doesn't explain the memory rise afterwards.

 

Once I start loading phpVirtualBox the memory starts rising as I navigate around the site and reaches over 1.6GB of memory usage by httpd processes.

This memory is kept in use and NOT cached !!!

 

Only when I disable Apache web server do all the httpd processes get removed and memory is returned to the system (freed not cached).

 

I have also tried it with eXplorer and also there the memory rises and not freed up, but not as much - only ~200MB.

I did get nginx up and running along with a php-fpm server.  However unRAID's php 5.4.40 was compiled with non thread safe and the public php packages are with thread safe. or vice versa I don't remeber but they are incompatible and I can't load soap. So I'll have to try and compile myself.

dmacias, of course I was able to run them before. I am running them right now, with the plugin uninstalled. VT-x / VT-d question: not answering  ;D. Please check attached image and signature for details and running VMs. Passthrough is enabled and running as well ...

From that image you are running kvm vm's. I assumed you meant virtualbox vms. I had no problem installing apache and running kvm vm's. However there was a package conflict that would not allow vm's to be created because of libpng error.  I have removed a couple packages and updated apache. To fix that problem you will have to upgrade the plugin and reboot.  For the problem your having I believe it's caused by virtualbox running. You cannot run them at the same time. To run virtualbox you would have to stop libvirt under settings/vm manager, enable vms = no.

 

If that doesn't fix it let me know.

Thanks

I haven't had a chance to completely update the plugin yet. You can delete the iconv.so from the /boot/php-ext-5.4.40-x86_64-2_slack14.1 package. I'll try to update everything later today.

Did you try removing the plugin from the installed plugin page? Then reinstall. If that didn't work then remove, reboot, reinstall. Or just reboot with the latest plugin version.

Updated for 6.1

 

Have you tested it on 6.0.1? - I had to run the "start" script from command line after reboot in order to get phpvirtualbox working.

No I didn't. Is there anything in the logs that's suggests why it didn't start? It should run the /usr/local/emhttp/plugins/apache/scripts/start script on disks_mounted.  I thought the only thing that would be broke was the file tree for docroot and the httpd logs. There's also a newer version of php extensions since 6.1rc6 is on a newer version. I could post the plg file for the previous 6.01 version or it's in my github.

That looks like it is running from /plugins/... , not from /usr/local/emhttp/plugins/...

Thanks that may be it for 6.01 to work. The 6.1rc update.php appends /usr/local/emhttp to the path but will take the full path also.
