Currently I don't have a test machine available, but I'm quite confident that the following changes should replace the /icingaweb2 with /status in /etc/httpd/conf.d/icingaweb2.conf:


    Alias /status "/usr/share/icingaweb2/public"


        <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
            RewriteEngine on
            RewriteBase /status/
            RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -s [OR]
            RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -l [OR]
            RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
            RewriteRule ^.*$ - [NC,L]
            RewriteRule ^.*$ index.php [NC,L]

        <IfModule !mod_rewrite.c>
            DirectoryIndex error_norewrite.html
            ErrorDocument 404 /status/error_norewrite.html

        <FilesMatch "\.php$">
            SetHandler "proxy:fcgi://{{ fpm_port }}"
            ErrorDocument 503 /status/error_unavailable.html

The latter is security by obscurity, though, and '/status' is not really an URL that they wouldn't try, so changing the URL won't buy you much of a benefit.
