Apache restarting problems

When I reboot my server with the paid version of virtualmin Apache says it is running, but no web pages show up untill i click the ‘restart’ button for apache.

it does not matter if I use kde gui tool to restart the apache server or the virtualmin/webmin interface to restart it but it wont serve up any web pages untill i have manually restarted it.

Can you shed some light on this issue.


I’m curious, after you reboot your server, does Apache show up in the process list?

If you log in over SSH, what does it show when you type this:

ps auxw | grep httpd

(or if you’re using Ubuntu/Debian, run: ps auxw | grep apache2)

And does anything show up in the Apache error log in /var/log/httpd/error_log (on RHEL/CentOS), or /var/log/apache2/error_log (on Debian/Ubuntu)?

Lastly, if you restart Apache from the command line, do any errors or warnings get printed to the screen? You can do that with the following:

/etc/init.d/httpd restart

/etc/init.d/apache2 restart
