Why the service is unable to start?

@royki @Inderpreet
I’ve attempted this task thrice but still the same issue.
The respective process is not killing and the syntax is also in “OK” state for https.
Please have a look at the attached screenshot for your reference.


Try to check the status by -
systemctl status httpd - you can get the error msg and the possible hints of the problem
journalctl -u httpd or journalctl -xe httpd - It will give the logs and you ll find some useful information where the problem is.

@royki I’ve done that! There was something like (98)Address already in use: AH00072: make_sock: could not bind to address

So is it ok now ?
It’s better to check /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf wrt the logs.


Careful what process you’re killing, you’re killing pid 0 which is the swapper process not the intended one. The pid is shown as pid/name at the end of the netstat. So it wasn’t killed.

If you would like to see pid of process then try this “ss -nltp” .
