Munin and Nagios

We use Munin and Nagios to monitor our farm of servers. We recently upgraded our own corp site with one based off WordPress. Just this evening I noticed that Munin wasn’t returning nice charts for the Apache processes. After some digging I discovered it was due to rewrite rules in the .htaccess overriding the httpd.conf config. Easy fix though, just added a rule to the .htaccess to ignore the server-status url:

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !=/server-status

I’m posting here for my own notes. I give full credit to this site.
