The Server Status module is built by default in Apache and can be enabled in the /etc/httpd.conf file by adding the lines:
<Location "/server-status"> SetHandler server-status </Location>
You can add some rules to allow access to the status page from one IP only. Example:
<Location /server-status> SetHandler server-status Order deny,allow Deny from all Allow from 18.104.22.168 </Location>
A related option here is the ExtendedStaus directive.
This option tracks additional data per worker about the currently executing request and creates a utilization summary. You can see these variables during runtime by configuringApache help
mod_status. Note that other modules may rely on this scoreboard.
Starting from Apache 2.3.6, the loading of the mod_status module will change the directive ExtendedStatus to On.
In cPanel the lines from the /etc/httpd.conf file are:
# You can change this by using WHM, and updating the 'Tweak Settings' -> 'System' -> 'Allow server-info' option. <IfModule status_module> # This is used by the WHM 'Apache Status' application <Location /whm-server-status> SetHandler server-status Order deny,allow Deny from all Allow from 127.0.0.1 ::1 <IfModule security2_module> SecRuleEngine Off </IfModule> </Location> </IfModule>
You can see that the status page will be available at localhost/whm-server-status/ but only for local clients (127.0.0.1 / ::1).
In DirectAdmin, the file in question is /etc/httpd/conf/extra/httpd-info.conf. The lines are:
# Allow server status reports generated by mod_status, # with the URL of http://servername/server-status # Change the ".example.com" to match your domain to enable. <Location /server-status> SetHandler server-status Require host .example.com Require ip 127 </Location>
Here, the URL will be localhost/server-status. You can configure a host or an IP that can access the status page.
