Running Web Sharing on Mac (localhost Apache + MySQL settings) kills my Mac. It opens 30-40 httpd sequences, takes up to 90% percent CPU power, and keeps the fan running constantly.

sudo apachectl stop keeps the CPU safe, but then again -- I need the Apache running :)

What can I do the solve this?

More info, please.... (System details, apache and mysql version, maybe even your httpd.conf file, etc...) – Fake Name Mar 20 '10 at 9:06
This is my problem: -- Though the fix won't work (localhost is not functioning when commenting out these modules) – Konzepz Mar 20 '10 at 9:07
MacBook (intel) + Snow Leopard, 4GB RAM, 43GB free space. httpd.conf coming up. – Konzepz Mar 20 '10 at 9:13

Found the source of the problem: .htaccess mod_rewrite on crashes Wordpress when textual permalinks are set.

This is weird, but at least it's not system.

WordPress is full of bugs; it would only be "weird" if it worked properly. – Hasaan Chop Mar 20 '10 at 17:27
