Hi there @edgarbg585,

If the Vendor preset is Disabled, this means that if your server gets rebooted the service, in your case httpd will not be started automatically.

To change that you can enable the service with the following command:

systemctl enable service_name

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
