I am monitoring a server with Munin. Everything but Apache is reporting nicely. My Apache graphs are empty.

I have edited apache httpd.conf to switch ExtendedStatus On. I have then edited my vhosts file to include the following:

        <Location /server-status>
           SetHandler server-status
           Order deny,allow
           Deny from all
           Allow from

I am using NamedHosts as I don't want all my IP addresses listening on port 80.

After making this change, I try locally accessing the server using the address that munin will query:

$ wget
--2013-01-24 21:51:13--
Connecting to failed: Connection refused.

Why is this connection getting refused?

Please check if you have Listen in your httpd.conf. – user186665 Aug 22 '13 at 14:18
