Hi, I have the following servers running on my Ubuntu linux box:

Apache
Mysql
Asterisk

What command do I use to see the status of the servers running on my machine, I would like to know if the server is running or stopped. I will use this output to display the status of these servers to a web page.

Thanks for the help.
