retreiving apache2 server status - forbidden

I am running a distro of Debian, and have apache2 up and running. I access the /server-status page, and it says:

You don't have permission to access /server-status on this server.

How do I change this so that only authorized users can access this, like an administrator?meme

Check your apache config, from memory I think access to the server-status is only from localhost. If you want to change that to use authentication there's plenty of tutorials on how to use basic authentication with htpasswd
