    * Any idea why do i get this error ?

    Hi All,

    My sites dont load up via HTTP but iam able to do ftp etc. and when i went to cpanel to see service status i get this :

    Server Status apache (1.3.33 (Unix)) failed

    Is this something really serious as iam not a geek here and i have sites which have visitors so iam a bit worried that if i choose a right host (i recently changed over to this host).

    Please advice !

    you have to configure your httpd.conf to allow these, and its not usually on by default:

    <IfModule mod_status.c>
      ExtendedStatus On
    <Location /server-status>
        SetHandler server-status
        Order deny,allow
        Deny from all
        Allow from
    take a look at your httpd.conf, it'll probably be commented out in there (a # before the line)

    cPanel runs a process (chkservd) that check certain services every 5-8 mins and restarts any failed services. When a sevice fails and is restored by chkservd it will still shows as failed until the next ckeck.
    chkservd only checks the services every 5 or 10 minutes - can't remember which. If you want it to update immediately however, just log onto SSH and type "service chkservd restart" - that'll update the status indicators in WHM.
