Overview

Apache Application Monitor retrieves statistics from the built-in Apache server-status web page using Perl scripts.

This article shows how to configure Apache to allow access to the server-status page.

Environment

SAM 6.0 and later

Steps

  1. Log on to your Apache server using an SSH or telnet client.
  2. Grant yourself root permissions (su root).
  3. Locate the Apache configuration file, typically in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf 
    (For more information, see: http://wiki.apache.org/httpd/DistrosDefaultLayout)
  4. Append the following lines to your httpd.conf Apache configuration file, substituting the IP address or host name of your Apache server for localhost. Use localhost only if the Apache server services the loopback interface.
    <Location /server-status>
    SetHandler server-status
    Order Deny,Allow
    Deny from all
    Allow from localhost
    </Location>
    ExtendedStatus On
  5. Restart the Apache server (apachectl graceful).
  6. If the event a counter returns the following error, you will need to install libwww-perl.
    Can't locate LWP/UserAgent.pm in @INC ...” error:
  7. To install libwww-perl., enter the following command:
    cpan LWP::UserAgent

or

   yum install perl-libwww-perl.noarch
