How to Check Apache Status on CentOs Linux

systemctl status httpd is a command that displays the status of the Apache httpd service in CentOs, RHEL and Fedora Linux. This command will show you whether the httpd service is running, stopped, or has failed. Additionally, it will provide you with some basic information about the service.


To use the command, simply open a terminal, connect to your Linux web server and enter 'systemctl status httpd' followed by pressing enter.


The image below shows an example of what the output might look like:

systemctl status httpd in command line box

As you can see, the output shows that the httpd service is currently active and running. The Main PID which in this case is 3782396, is also displayed, which is the process ID of the httpd service. Additionally, information about memory usage, Total requests, workers, and other details are shown.


If the output of the systemctl status httpd command shows that the httpd service is not running, there are several things you can try to troubleshoot the issue. Here are a few possible solutions:

  • Check the Apache configuration files: The first thing to check is the Apache configuration files. Check to make sure that the configuration files are correct and that there are no syntax errors.
  • Check the log files: Check the Apache log files to see if there are any errors or warnings. This can help you diagnose the issue.
  • Restart the service: If all else fails, try restarting the httpd service using the systemctl restart httpd command.
