Unable to start httpd service?

systemctl start httpd
-> Job for httpd.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See “systemctl status httpd.service” and “journalctl -xe” for details.

After checking the status :->

Hi @akshaydongar123

Can you provide me with the output of httpd -t and journalctl -xe


First when I tried to Start httpd service

root@host01 /# httpd -t
Syntax OK

Validate -> journalctl -xe

In journalctl -xe, share that image where httpd error is showing. It is available in downside, so do more scroll down.

unable to do more to check these logs

@akshaydongar123 kindly check the correct commands below:

@KodeKloud Can you check once why i am unable to start the httpd service . is it because some process is already running ?

Share the output of httpd service. Do this in the terminal window
sudo journalctl -u httpd.service

HI @player001 I dont know what was the issues . but now i am able to install , start & check the status of httpd service
