Hi Shadow,

First, you need to aknowledge major changes introduced by jessie.
Apache changes from version 2.2 (wheezy) to version 2.4.
You have to change vhost directive for access control (Allow directive ...).
You will find all you need to know for managing this upgrade in the official documentation, here:

Hope this works for you!

Regardless, give us your feedback!
This would help prevent future questions from being asked. ;-)

Best regards,

Hello monit community,

since I upgraded my servers to debian jessie I encountered the following

Monit says it cannot start my apache2 anymore. Initialization failed.
The log says:

> Jul 23 11:59:00 www-xeon monit[495]: 'apache' process is not running
> Jul 23 11:59:00 www-xeon monit[495]: 'apache' trying to restart
> Jul 23 11:59:00 www-xeon monit[495]: 'apache' start: /etc/init.d/apache2
> Jul 23 12:00:00 www-xeon monit[495]: 'apache' failed to start (exit status 0) -- /etc/init.d/apache2: Starting web server: apache2.

But it actually restarts the apache process is restarted. But claim that
it fails and unmonitors the service in the webgui. But if I stop the
apache again, monit kicks in and restarts it. So there seem to be two
false positives

At first I thought it could the wrong .pid entry in
/etc/monit/conf.d/apache. But that wasnt the case. (Changed in debian
jessie from /var/run/apache2 to /var/run/apache2/ )

> check process apache with pidfile "/var/run/apache2/"
>   start program = "/etc/init.d/apache2 start" with timeout 60 seconds
>   stop program  = "/etc/init.d/apache2 stop"
>   if cpu > 60% for 2 cycles then alert
>   if cpu > 80% for 5 cycles then restart
>   if children > 250 then restart
>   if loadavg(5min) greater than 10 for 8 cycles then stop
>   group server

Does anyone had similiar issues? Am  I missing something?

thanks for this great tool - love it :)

cheers shadow //
