    Zabbix and a script can be used get mod_status info into Zabbix

  3. Loc says:

    mod_status is only for monitoring servers. I have to go onto the server to check out its status. This is very time consuming. If I want to automate this process, as in, if the server hit a certain number of request then it would send a trap or notification telling me I should look into it. Is there a way I can do this?

    Tks

      @Loc,
      There isn’t any tool that provides such functionality, the only way is to achieve this is to via custom scripts..

    Very informative tutorial!

    mod_status is works well on HTTP. But When I enable redirection to port 443 by .htaccess then I get Page not found. Please let me know how I can fix this.

    tags get cut off, google IfModule mod_authz_core.c

  8. frollic says:

    hmm, site cut of the tags …

    # Apache 2.4
    Require all granted

    # Apache 2.2
    Order deny,allow
    Allow from all

  9. frollic says:

    Thnx for the guide!

    Note that the syntax for access permissions changed from Apache 2.2 to 2.4.

    Order allow,deny
    Deny from all
    Allow from example.com

    becomes simply

    Require host example.org

    ref: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/upgrading.html

    to make it upgrade safe, it can be written as:

    # Apache 2.4
    Require all granted

    # Apache 2.2
    Order deny,allow
    Allow from all
