Apache status is not showing up in WHM.

Solution

This is usually due to the server-status directive being commented out.

1. Back up your current httpd.conf

root@cpanel [~]# cd /usr/local/apache/conf
root@cpanel [/usr/local/apache/conf]# cp httpd.conf httpd.conf.save.`date +%s`
root@cpanel [/usr/local/apache/conf]# ls -la httpd.conf*
-rw——-    1 root     root        45279 Oct 28 18:44 httpd.conf
-rw——-    1 root     root        45279 Nov 10 01:27 httpd.conf.save.1131607650
root@cpanel [/usr/local/apache/conf]#

The date +%s above outputs the current date in the “seconds since `00:00:00 1970-01-01 UTC'” format.

2. Open httpd.conf with your favorite editor and uncomment the following directive and allow localhost to browse it.

<Location /server-status>
SetHandler server-status
Order deny,allow
Deny from all
Allow from 127.0.0.1
</Location>

3. Test the apache configuration and gracefully restart it.

root@cpanel [~]# /etc/init.d/httpd configtest
Syntax OK
root@cpanel [~]# /etc/init.d/httpd graceful
/etc/init.d/httpd graceful: httpd gracefully restarted
root@cpanel [~]#

4. Verfiy that you can not get apache status from the localhost.

root@cpanel [~]# /etc/init.d/httpd status
