Are there any GUI tools for configuring and monitoring Apache?

I used this for a while, it doesnt have to many feature but it does it job for managing modules and virtualhosts.

Rapache is a simple tool for remotely managing and configuring an apache2 instance without having to hassle around through configuration files.

Rapache doesn't work on 10.04 and it doesn't look like it will be revived anytime soon. – joon Jul 31 '11 at 22:26

There is httpd support in Gadmin.

Packages are in the repos and more information can be found on the website

You could user Webmin that is a webapp for managing servers. This would also have the advantage of easy remote access.

Webmin is a web-based interface for system administration for Unix. Using any modern web browser, you can setup user accounts, Apache, DNS, file sharing and much more. Webmin removes the need to manually edit Unix configuration files like /etc/passwd, and lets you manage a system from the console or remotely.

Webmin is not recommended for use on Ubuntu (it was removed from the Debian and Ubuntu repositories because the way it works can cause problems when updating). – JanC Oct 21 '10 at 16:38
The Webmin/Ubuntu incompatibility looks like an issue of the past. – brasofilo Nov 19 '13 at 19:08

Here is another tool I found. Does not have all the bells and whistles but it is currently being updated. Highly Integrated Localhost WebServer Indicator
