Apache Error

Post by circuitbear » 2014/10/22 03:04:29

So I was working on getting my website running about two ish months ago before my college classes started again.

Today I decided to try to get the routing working since that was where I was having issues(the site would show up with a host file but not without it). When I tried to get to the site, I started getting a variety of issues I couldn't understand.(Mariadb, ssh, and a number of other processes stopped working). I managed to track all of those down to being permissions issues. I am not sure how these occured when I haven't touched the server in months but from what I can tell, everything but apache is now running. When testing apache, I get no error code or message that I can tell. No syntax error, no permissions error.(I tested http -t and it told me my syntax was fine even.) This is all I get for the issue with httpd.

Code: Select all

 systemctl status httpd.service -l
httpd.service - The Apache HTTP Server
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/httpd.service; enabled)
   Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Tue 2014-10-21 22:02:06 CDT; 10s ago
  Process: 15066 ExecStop=/bin/kill -WINCH ${MAINPID} (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
  Process: 15065 ExecStart=/usr/sbin/httpd $OPTIONS -DFOREGROUND (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)
 Main PID: 15065 (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)

Oct 21 22:02:06 NewsRunner.localdomain systemd[1]: httpd.service: main process exited, code=exited, status=1/FAILURE
Oct 21 22:02:06 NewsRunner.localdomain systemd[1]: Failed to start The Apache HTTP Server.
Oct 21 22:02:06 NewsRunner.localdomain systemd[1]: Unit httpd.service entered failed state.


Any advice on how to troubleshoot the issue more thoroughly will be greatly appreciated.

I think Apache keeps a log in /etc/httpd/log/ - or something like that. Perhaps clues will be in there ...
Remember - importing/building packages will likely "byte you in the butt" come update time, long after you'd forgotten you did that! Use repos whenever possible.

Not the CentOS supplied version.
The logs are in /var/log/httpd.

I don't have httpd installed on el7 but on el6, /etc/httpd/logs is a symlink to /var/log/httpd

I have httpd installed on CentOS 6 and /var/log/httpd is not a symlink.

Other way around, /etc/httpd has a bunch of symlinks in it, one of those is to ../../var/log/httpd
