Issues with apache2 restart
I have followed the phpMyAdmin tutorial, and have experienced an issue.
I have given the following command:
sudo service apache2 restart
I have received the following response:
Job for apache2 service failed because the control process exited with error code. See “systemctl status apache2.service” and “journalctl -xe” for details.
Upon using systemctl status apache2.service, I see the following text:
[reddot] apache2.service - LSB: Apache2 web server
Loaded: loaded (etc/init.d/apache2; bad vendor preset: enabled)
Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Sun 2016-08-21 [TIME]; 18s ago
Process: 19827 ExecStop=etc/init.d/apache2 stop (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
Process: 16438 ExecReload=/et/init.d/apache2 stop reload (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
Process: 19919 ExecStat=/etc/init.d/apache2 start (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)
Doing “journalctl -xe” give a large amount of information, with no obvious issues visible.
