Hi @salmanafzal

It looks like there’s a configuration error somewhere in your Apache configs. Run this:

sudo apachectl configtest

Please post the last 30 lines from the Apache error log. Run this:

sudo tail -30 /var/log/apache2/error.log

Hi @hansen
When i enter these command in PuTTy , an error show.
=>sudo apachectl configtest
AH00548: NameVirtualHost has no effect and will be removed in the next release /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf:355
(2)No such file or directory: AH02291: Cannot access directory ’/var/www/’ for error log of vhost defined at /etc/httpd/conf.d/
AH00014: Configuration check failed
=> sudo tail -30 /var/log/apache2/error.log
tail: cannot open ‘/var/log/apache2/error.log’ for reading: No such file or directory

Kindly solve my issue please. What is error in my Linux Server?

  • @salmanafzal

    The ErrorLog parameter defined in /etc/httpd/conf.d/ is incorrect. Either remove it or change it to something correct, and then restart Apache.

    This is the community forum, meaning user-to-user support.
    And there’s nothing wrong with your Linux Server, you just have a bad configuration in Apache.
