Re: [monit] Monit fails to create PID file on restart

Tom, are there any error logs in /var/log/httpd/ ?  Those might provide some clues as to why the PID file is not being created, which is generally a bad thing.

I apologize if this has been asked and answered, I did my fair share of searching and couldn't find anything. Basically what is happening is monit attempts to restart a process, which it actually suceeds in doing, but the PID file is not created, so monit thinks the process failed to restart! I am talking about httpd specifically here as I haven't tried anything else yet. When running the start/stop commands from the cl they work fine -- and create the proper PID file. Below is my httpd.conf and monitrc, hopefully someone can point out some stupid error on my part because I am at a loss.

set daemon  60
set logfile /var/log/monit.log
set mailserver localhost
set httpd port 3500 and
     allow admin:monit
allow localhost
include /etc/monit/cfg/*

check process httpd with pidfile /var/run/
group apache
start program = "/etc/init.d/httpd start"
stop  program = "/etc/init.d/httpd stop"
if cpu is greater than 50% for 5 cycles then alert
if cpu is greater than 80% for 5 cycles then restart
# Auto-fail test to see if things are working
if totalmem is greater than 6.0 MB for 1 cycles then restart

log bits:

Thanks for any help!
