Here are two quick snippets of the minimal set of directives to launch an httpd instance for versions 2.4 and 2.2.

They are meant to be used as a starting point when one either wants to clean up an old instance which segfaults or suffers from other recurring issues, or to achieve the minimum footprint on a system with limited resources.

Configurations presume you have your Apache web server, including configuration, modules and documents to serve, installed in /usr/httpd/. For common locations for these things in many distributions look at this page http://wiki.apache.org/httpd/DistrosDefaultLayout. Configurations also presume all possible modules are compiled as dynamically loadable as opposed to static.

The following configuration is compatible with version 2.4 of the Apache HTTP server with the default MPM (event) compiled as a shared module.
