Only if you still use Order Allow,Deny instead of require

Ony if you need to run cgi scripts

99,9% chance that you don't need this module

all the mod_authn* and mod_authz* depend what kind of authentication and authorisation you use.

Only if people shall be able to browse the directories without and index file. High chance that you don't need this.

Only if you are behind cloudflare

only if you use server side includes. I think 99% chance that you don't need this

LoadModule isapi_module modules/mod_isapi.so
Chances are very high that you don't need this.

Chances are very high that you don't need this module. Read the docs.

Thanks for your answer Wink

mod_access_compat.so : I must remove old code to remove it

mod_cloudflare.so : i use it Wink

mod_vhost_alias.so : i use it too

mod_authz* : i need core and host, require seem to don't work without it

But i remove every others : apache performance is far better Wink

Really thanks

Once you removed mod_access_compat.so is will speed up your apache.
If you disable the use of .htaccess files, but put the config into the vhost settings that should give you the biggest boost ( if you haven't done it already)
