Apache HTTP Server is the underlying software used to run websites hosted on your VPS server. If you’re experiencing an issue with a site, such as slow running or a lack of connectivity, it’s a good idea to check the Apache Status in the WHM dashboard.
To do so, first log in to the WHM dashboard. Enter “Apache” in the WHM search box, then select Apache Status under Server Status.
A log file will be displayed, with server status details.
The top of the page provides an overview of current status:
- Server Version – The version of Apache running on the server.
- Server Built – The time and date Apache was installed.
- Current Time
- Restart Time – The time and date the server was last restarted.
- Parent Server Generation – The number of times that you have restarted Apache gracefully, which causes it to re-read its configuration file.
- Server Uptime – The amount of time over which the server has run.
- Total Accesses – The total number of requests for your server.
- Total Traffic – The total amount of traffic for your server, in Megabytes (MB).
- CPU Usage – The total CPU usage and current load percentage.
Below, you’ll see a Scoreboard, displaying a variety of information regarding items being processed by the Apache Server. Information here includes:
- Srv – The worker’s server number.
