11.3. Server Status

For this exercise, the httpd.conf in ... /site.status file should look like this:

User webuser
Group webgroup
ServerName www.butterthlies.com
DocumentRoot /usr/www/site.status/htdocs

<Location /status>
order deny, allow
allow from 192.168.123.1
deny from all
SetHandler server-status
</Location>

<Location /info>
order deny, allow
allow from 192.168.123.1
deny from all
SetHandler server-status
SetHandler server-info
</Location>

The allow from directive keeps our laundry private.

Remember the way order works: the last entry has the last word. Notice also the use of SetHandler , which sets a handler for all requests to a directory, instead of AddHandler, which specifies a handler for particular file extensions. If you then access www.butterthlies.com/status, you get this response:
