    I have result "status_module (shared)" and apache 2.4.6 (CentOS)

    Hi @Karl,

    As written at the step 4, create etc/httpd/conf.modules.d/status.conf in case the file does not exist.

    That is ok for a default installation.

    Tried this and it doesn't work. Also tried putting require all granted in case I put the wrong IP but still doesn't work.

    Hi @Sharul Hafiz,

    It's quite tricky to conclude here what can cause this, so to sort it out, please contact support: How to submit a request to Plesk support?

    I use CentOS 7.6 with Apache 2.4.  The above instructions to create "/etc/httpd/conf.modules.d/status.conf" do not work. 

    I noticed that there is a "status.conf" already existing in "/etc/httpd/conf.d" with the following contents:

    ExtendedStatus on
    <Location /server-status>
    SetHandler server-status
    Order deny,allow
    Deny from all
    Allow from

    If I add another "Allow from x.x.x.x" line, where "x.x.x.x" is my IP address, it works.

    Given this information, please review and advise of preferred method to enable server-status on CentOS 7.6 with Apache 2.4.




    I settled on the following configuration, in /etc/httpd/conf.d/status.conf, which allow access by IP, or password:

    ExtendedStatus on
    <Location /server-status>
    SetHandler server-status
    AuthType basic
    AuthName "Apache status"
    AuthUserFile /etc/httpd/conf/server-status_htpasswd
    Require valid-user
    Require ip x.x.x.x
    Require ip
    # Order deny,allow
    # Deny from all
    # Allow from
    # Allow from x.x.x.x

    Please advise if there is a better way to do this.

    Thank you for the feedback. 

    I created fresh VM with CentOS 7.6 base installation, Apache 2.4 and Plesk Onyx: 

    # plesk version | grep Product.
    Product version: Plesk Onyx 17.8.11 Update #48
    # httpd -v | grep version
    Server version: Apache/2.4.6 (CentOS)
    # cat /etc/centos-release
    CentOS Linux release 7.6.1810 (Core)

    And I could not see "status.conf" file in "/etc/httpd/conf.d" directory. I believe that file on your server has been created manually earlier. And our guide is compatible for CentOS 7.6 and Apache 2.4.
    As for your configuration, it is fully correct. hope that other pleskians will also find your snippets useful.

    @Konstantin, Thanks!  This is a fresh and new server.  Perhaps my dedicated server provider made customizations.  Alternatively, maybe enabling Plesk's Health Monitor or Watchdog or some other extension, could have added that file.

    @Bob B, 

    I also suppose that server provider could make some customizations in server's template. Moreover, I have installed all the components in Plesk installer, however config file still does not exist in conf.d.
