I finally did the following trick (only valid in dedicated process mode, of

The wthttpd connector, when throwing a new process session, it launchs a
new instance of the program with the option --parent-port=X at the end, and
X being the port of the main server (as set in --http-port). The server
knows if it is the main process or a child process checking if parent-port
is set or not.

     Wt::WServer server(argc, argv, WTHTTP_CONFIGURATION);

     std::string arg(argv[argc - 1]);
     auto* test = "--parent-port";

     // If != 0, and thus, the option is not present (as last parameter).
     if (arg.compare(0, strlen(test), test)) {
          std::string thread_count;
          server.readConfigurationProperty("thread-count", thread_count);
// I added it as <property> in my wt_config.xml

After launching the server and a tab with the page loaded, I checked, with
pstree -a, how many threads I have in both the main and child processes,
and effectively, only the thread pool of the main process changed.

Before that trick, I tried to check if it is a parent or child process with
WServer::httpPort(), to see to which port is the server binded to, but
before running start(), the tcp endpoint of the parent process is not yet
set and it crashes (gdb output):

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
