11.2. Status

Apache can be persuaded to cough up comprehensive diagnostic information by including and invoking the module mod_status:

AddModule modules/standard/mod_status.o

This produces invaluable information for the webmaster of a busy site, enabling him or her to track down problems before they become disasters.
