Monit command line contacts the main monit process via the http
interface, and in your case it cannot reach it.

So, either the main monit process is not running, or it is unreachable
through the network.
I suspect that you need to add "allow localhost" directive to the "set
httpd" section.

By the way, this is a wrong maillist (your problem has nothing to do
with mongrel), here is a better place to ask questions about monit:
