Apache server status setup

To set up server status page for web server Apache use the following commands:

1. Check Apache web service configuration files
# /sbin/service httpd configtest
Syntax OK

2. Make backup copy of main web server Apache configuration file
# cp -fvp /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf-2013-05-21.bak
`/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf’ -> `/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf-2013-05-21.bak’

3. Edit main web server Apache configuration file /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf with your favorite editor. Mine is vim.

LoadModule status_module modules/mod_status.so

3.2. Add these lines:
<Location /server-status>
