The problem occurs when I’m trying to install Apache 2 by running
sudo apt install apache2
which returns an error
Job for apache2.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status apache2.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details. invoke-rc.d: initscript apache2, action "start" failed. ● apache2.service - The Apache HTTP Server Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/apache2.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled) Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Wed 2022-06-01 08:25:37 UTC; 18ms ago Docs: https://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/ Process: 26820 ExecStart=/usr/sbin/apachectl start (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)
After encountering that error, I tried googling for the solution and ended up with this first solution (by running the configtest command). Then the test came out that I have not set my ServerName right, so I tried setting it to my public IP address and restarted the apache2 system, but no luck. I still get the error even though the configtest came out only Syntax OK.
