Apache Server-Status Ubuntu 16.04


I have followed guidance on installing Server-Status on Ubuntu 16.04 Server. I just want to run it directly on my server with lynx.

Firstly I ran sudo a2enmod status and its enabled

Then sudo nano /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/status.conf

And edited the file so:

 <Location /server-status>
                SetHandler server-status
                Require local
                Require ip
        </Location> is my droplet IP address

I also added to the above lines just below <VirtualHost *:80> on sudo nano /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default.conf

I also added the following to .htaccess

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !=/server-status

Finally, sudo systemctl restart apache2

When I try lynx

I get ‘Forbidden You don’t have permission to access this resource.’

Please can you help? Thanks

Hi there @jonesypeter7fa4,

I could suggest also adding to your allowed IPs list.

Let me know how it goes! Regards, Bobby
