How many places are there in WHM to check if Apache is up and why don't they all say the same thing? I made some alterations to httpd.conf and restarted Apache via WHM and it said &httpd failed&. I restored the original version of the file and restarted again and it said that it started but when I checked the server status Apache was showing as failed. I retsarted Apache again and got no warnings but the server status was saying failed.

I ran /scripts/easyapache as I didn't know where anything was up to any more. Whilst the script was running Apache started showing green on the Service Status panel. As the script ended it finished with &httpd has failed, please contact the sysadmin& but it's still showing green.

Is it up or down? I am the sysadmin and I haven't got a clue!

WHM's Service Status is a bit slow... Login via SSH and issue command:

ps aux | grep apache

If you have apache processes running, then it's up :)
