Apache Web server : Worker and Fork models

The basic difference between worker.c and prefork.c is that :
 worker.c module allows multiple threads from multiple processes
whereas
prefork.c is a non threaded module
(similar to the earlier apache 1.3.)

Worker : http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/worker.html
Prefork : http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/mpm.html
