If you have httpd running as a service in Centos, you can run service httpd status.   It will
return a status code of 0 if it is running.

% service httpd status > /dev/null
Redirecting to /bin/systemctl status  httpd.service

% echo $?
0

Subject: [users@httpd] apache run status: how to tell as non-root user (on *nix)?

I need to programatically determine whether httpd is running or not, whether I'm root or not.
The only reliable way I have found is to use the system command 'ps -C httpd' and grep the
results.

Is there a better way?

Thanks.

Best regards,
