Apache - Enabling/Disabling Keep-Alive


First off, I’m new to DreamHost and the whole web-development scene. I’m currently using DreamHost for a Django application I wrote. I’m currently in the midst of deploying this app and would like to look into the option of turning off the Keep-Alive feature for Apache. A couple questions regarding this:

  1. What methods can I use to determine whether Keep-Alive is on or off currently? I believe the default is on, but I’d like to confirm.

  2. Assuming it’s on, how would I turn off Keep-Alive? And does it apply to the entire site as a whole or could it be configured to be on/off for different directories?

Thanks for the time and help in advance.
