Ok, it seems that main source of questions is php-apache package that
causes "Apache is running a threaded MPM, but your PHP Module is not
compiled to be threadsafe.  You need to recompile PHP." error at
apache start.

The answer is that you need to switch apache MPM from default
mod_mpm_event to slower but mod_php-compatible mod_mpm_prefork.  See
more information in at wiki page
BTW kudos to our users who already updated wiki for Apache2.4!

And of course anyone is welcome to create a threadsafe version of
php-apache in AUR so it can be used with mpm_event.
