I’ve an Ubuntu Linux 16.04.1 server, running a wordpress blog my server hardware is pretty ok for this task but I found that apache2 is loading too much memory.

After i JUST REBOOT the server the OS shows me this consume

2215    www-data    563.27 MB   /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start
2216    www-data    563.27 MB   /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start
2217    www-data    563.27 MB   /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start

It’s a pretty high value for a server before any request, I found the config file setting the number of spare servers to 3 after start up and it is okay.

but the amount of memory each server loads is what making me confuse and i didnt found any configuration to set this value or a min or max.

Does anyone know the default value for an apache php mysql running a wordpress?

are there any config file i can check for understand why such high memory?
