i followed this steps: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-install-and-configure-monit and installed and configured monit, editing the file:/etc/monit/monitrc
i added this lines to check for this services:
check process apache with pidfile /run/apache2.pid start program = “/etc/init.d/apache2 start” with timeout 60 seconds stop program = “/etc/init.d/apache2 stop”
check process mysqld with pidfile /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.pid start program = “/etc/init.d/mysql start” stop program = “/etc/init.d/mysql stop”
check process proftpd with pidfile /var/run/proftpd.pid start program = “/etc/init.d/proftpd start” stop program = “/etc/init.d/proftpd stop” if failed port 21 protocol ftp then restart if 5 restarts within 5 cycles then timeout
But monit is not running, when i run the command: monit start all i get:
monit: Cannot connect to the monit daemon. Did you start it with http support? monit: Cannot connect to the monit daemon. Did you start it with http support? monit: Cannot connect to the monit daemon. Did you start it with http support? monit: Cannot connect to the monit daemon. Did you start it with http support?
