Thumbs up FIX: high load caused by Apache Log : Internal Dummy Connection

If your default vhost is a heavy dynamic website that is even using mod_rewrite then the fix is easy.

Create a new vhost, example:

Add a nice plain index.html file to the /var/www/ folder so that the vhost is as light as possible.

The trick is to make this vhost the default one.

From SSH type:

mv /etc/httpd/conf/sites-enabled/ /etc/httpd/conf/sites-enabled/

Restart Apache:

/etc/init.d/httpd restart

Now the connections to the Apache childrens are being kept alive using the default vhost.
Best regards,
