    Hello!

    I receive the following error when attempting to view the 'Apache Status' within WHM: "Apache server status for server.x.com. Failed to receive status information from Apache. Unable to connect to local httpd server."

    I re-built Apache using the default build and I am still receiving the error.

    When viewing the error_log (/usr/local/apache/logs/error_log) I see the following messages...
