Like every other program running on your VPS or Dedicated Server, Apache is a piece of software that serves the purpose of a Web Server. The job of a typical Web Server is to serve web requests made to websites hosted on the Web Hosting Server.
For example, if one of your visitors requests your domain, “domain.com”, from a web browser, Apache will then serve the index page for domain.com as a response to the request. Knowing about the current status of Apache is useful when you are facing issues with your website’s pages not being served or when you are experiencing slow loading speed for those. The “Apache Status” feature in the WHM control panel will give you all the information you need to troubleshoot such issues and in the next lines of this tutorial, we will show you how easy it is to use it. Let’s get started!
First, you need to log into the WHM service for your VPS or Dedicated Server. If you are not sure how to do that, please check our How to access the WHM service tutorial. After you have logged in, please use the search bar on the left side of the page and type “Apache Status”.
When the functionality shows up below the search bar, please click on it so you can be sent to the “Apache Status” page.
When you first land on this page, you will notice the first section which will contain really basic information about Apache. More specifically its version, its current MPM module, and the date and time when Apache was installed on the server.
The second display will contain the following information.
The next section is “Scoreboard Key”. It shows information about the Apache workers and their current mode. The section below will represent all of the available slots Apache has for requests.
Bellow the scoreboard you will see a table section, displaying the current requests Apache is processing. Let’s go over the columns and explain them.
There you have it! Please note that in this guide, we have attempted to capture the most relevant parts of this page. Apache is a really complex system and there is a lot of information available on its official documentation page, which we cannot simply cover in a single tutorial. However, if you have any questions about this specific feature or you are unaware of what something means or does, please, feel free to contact our Technical Support Team over the ticketing system in your Client Area.
