What if I told you there is a Perl script that will comb through your Apache setup and report back crucial improvements that can be made to your configuration? The script is apache2buddy.pl (a fork of apachebuddy), and it can do more for your web server in seconds than the hours it would take to sift through everything.

The script doesn’t fix your problems—once it’s run, the script will suggest fixes for Apache that you can then read through and act upon. The apache2buddy.pl script will check for the following and much more:

  • PHP memory limits
  • Memcache
  • MaxClients
  • Memory usage
  • Max potential memory usage
  • Percentage of total RAM allocated to Apache
  • MaxRequestWorkers


  • After you fix the issues suggested by apache2buddy.pl, you’ll find your Apache server is significantly improved.

The apache2buddy.pl script is a must for anyone that administers an Apache server. With very little time and effort, you can tune your web server to near perfection.

Give apache2buddy.pl a try, and see if it doesn’t drastically increase the performance of your Apache deployment
