Question

Apache Server isn't starting on Centos 7

Hi, I’m trying to install Phabricator and I’m getting a problem when I run service httpd start:

[root@Phabricator phabricator]# service httpd start
Redirecting to /bin/systemctl start httpd.service
Job for httpd.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status httpd.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.

Log:

[root@Phabricator phabricator]# systemctl status httpd.service

Couple of ideas

  1. Check what’s running on port 80 with netstat -tlpn
  2. type apachectl configtest and see what output you get

same problem :(
