Subject RE: [users@httpd] How to tell if Apache is really running
Date Thu, 06 Jul 2006 14:33:56 GMT
Hi Jan,

Its easy...
You can use the web browser text tool called curl:

And a example of launch:
-i \<\/html\> > /dev/null
   echo "Arrancado..."
   # Indeterminado o no responde
   echo "Parado..."

The timeout can be 2 (seconds)
If you need to check also ldap: change http to ldap
If you need to check web + ldap and, by example, a engine servlet:

You can to probe also a db pool, creating a jsp page with a simple
connection sql form, and calling it...

My question is I would like to know the objective of this processes at
Apache 2.2.2:
   infra 24269 24247  /app/apache-2.2.2/bin/httpd -k start
   infra 25115 24247  /app/apache-2.2.2/bin/httpd -k start
   infra 24270 24247  /app/apache-2.2.2/bin/httpd -k start
   infra 24268 24247  /app/apache-2.2.2/bin/httpd -k start
   infra 25098 24247  /app/apache-2.2.2/bin/httpd -k start
   infra 24266 24247  /app/apache-2.2.2/bin/httpd -k start
   infra 24247     1  /app/apache-2.2.2/bin/httpd -k start
   infra 24267 24247  /app/apache-2.2.2/bin/httpd -k start

Process 24269, 25115, etc... childrens of 24247

Asunto: [users@httpd] How to tell if Apache is really running

First I have to apologize to all of you Apache experts for what will sound
like a stupid question.  However, I am new to Apache and will admit that I
have not a clue what I am doing with it.  How can I tell if Apache is really
running, since now matter what I cannot access the web site this server
should be hosting?

This command    ps -ax |grep http          produces the following results:
 1029  ??  Ss     0:00.46 /usr/local/sbin/httpd
 1030  ??  I      0:00.00 /usr/local/sbin/httpd
 1031  ??  I      0:00.00 /usr/local/sbin/httpd
 1032  ??  I      0:00.00 /usr/local/sbin/httpd
 1033  ??  I      0:00.00 /usr/local/sbin/httpd

I am running Apache Version 1.3 on a Unix system.  Things were running fine
until storms took out the power over the week-end and the system needed to
be re-started.  This system was set up by a third party company who no
longer provides support.  So, I am trying to determine what the problem is.
The Unix system itself starts and all of the processes that I expect, except

I have attached the error log file.  If anyone needs further information,
please let me know.  I will try to find it.  In looking at the Apache site,
I know that things were not left in default places.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
