Hello!

I'd like to monitor my Apache (version 2.2.22) server's status using a script, but without using the "server-status" handler (because it doesn't work when the server can't be reached).
On the internet, I found the "ftss" utility that uses shared memory to get the scoreboard data directly from within the Apache's memory. That's exactly what I want to achieve!
For this to work, one has to use the "ScoreBoardFile" directive, like so:

Code:
ScoreBoardFile /var/run/apache_status

That's what I tried, and I restarted Apache. But the file isn't getting created, and the "ftss" tool fails. The path is definitively writable for the Apache user. In the log files, I don't find any hints, warnings or errors - the scoreboard isn't mentioned anywhere. The directive is definitively being read because when I change "ScoreBoardFile" into something invalid, then "apache2ctl configtest" gives me an error. "mod_status" is loaded, and the regular "server-status" handler works fine.

Do you have any ideas what I might be doing wrong? Thanks!

Solved it! "apache2ctl restart" wasn't enough - I had to do "stop" and "start" ... Rolling Eyes
