notification of (action) restarts aren't sent

So I’ve installed monit 5.2.5 from EPEL. I realize this is old, but want to 
ensure that this isn’t a configuration issue. Can someone point out to me if I 
did something wrong here?

I’ve configured it send all alerts to my address, which works. If I leave 
instance alerts on, I get notified every time monit stops and starts.  

The restart works properly — the service is restarted, but no e-mail is sent. 
If I enable “nonexist” alerts, I get an alert that the process doesn’t exist, 
and then an alert that it has been started. That’s two alerts, and I’d like 
just one. I want the “action” alert, but one is not being sent. If I disable 
both instance and nonexist, no e-mail is sent when the service is restarted.

The documentation says: 
> In each test you must select the action to be executed from this list:
>        ·   RESTART restarts the service and sends an alert.

That underline is in the man page for emphasis. However I’m not receiving the 
alert that it was restarted.


set alert address@hidden
  only on { action, connection, content, data, exec, fsflags, gid, icmp, 
invalid, permission, resource, size, timeout, timestamp, uid }

check process apache
  with pidfile /var/run/httpd/
  group apache
  start "/etc/init.d/httpd start"
  stop "/etc/init.d/httpd stop"
  if failed host localhost port 80 protocol http request "/robots.txt" for 2 
    then restart
  if failed host localhost port 80 protocol apache-status waitlimit < 20% for 2 
    then alert
  if 3 restarts within 5 cycles
    then alert
