Hi there, 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?

You need to set up the webservice first. To have only available over localhost, append the following to "/etc/monit/monitrc"


set httpd port 2812 and
use address localhost
allow localhost
Done, then i just run: monit reload and then monit start all and give me the same error:

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?
fixed, i just needed to uncommend the file :D

I was having the same problem. Even after uncommenting in config file. The problem was that I did not restarted the monit service.

After uncomment the:
set httpd port 2812 and
use address localhost
allow localhost

From config file. Just restart the monit daemon

service monit restart

Hope this helps.
