I've had Apache 2.x running on my Fedora 15 box for a while, and it's been perfect. However, today I figured it would be good to put PHP on the machine too. So, I yummed php and a bunch of php modules onto the machine, which all installed with no problem. Having changed no config files, I went to restart Apache:
# /sbin/service httpd start
Starting httpd (via systemctl): Job failed. See system logs and
'systemctl status' for details.
"systemctl status" didn't tell me anything (except that there are too few arguments), and "systemctl dump" wasn't enlightening either. I checked the Apache error log, and there is only one error in there from today - although nothing in there from trying to start up: (I'm pretty sure this is from when I first issued an httpd restart)
[Thu Sep 22 11:37:35 2011] [notice] caught SIGTERM, shutting down
The only thing in /var/log/messages is the following, each time I attempt to restart:
Sep 22 11:47:19 dbserver systemd: httpd.service: control process exited, code=exited status=1
Sep 22 11:47:19 dbserver systemd: Unit httpd.service entered failed state.
I did the exact same PHP install on a Fedora 12 box yesterday and it worked perfectly. I would appreciate some suggestions as to how to get Apache up and running again. (ideally without rebooting the machine, because it's being used as a database server by other machines).
