Do an "ls -al /etc/httpd/logs && ls -al /var/log/httpd" please and tell what it shows. Most likely someone killed a link there.

also be aware that 6.5 is NOT supported
ONLY the current minor versions are
CentOS 5.11 , 6.6, and 7.1

and very soon 6.6 will be unsupported when 6.7 is releases


please check YOUR installed version
Code:
su -
cat /etc/redhat-release
and the output of this

Code:
su -
yum repolist all



also BEFORE!!! you get into the habit of using the VERY dangerous " YES TO EVERYTHING!!!!! ( -y ) option "

do not use it unless you KNOW with 100 percent CERTAINTY ,EXACTLY what it will do

you might be in for a very big BAD NEWS SURPRISE if you are not careful

And how does the repolist fix the broken symlink to the logfile-directory?

basically on 6.5 you really do NOT install anything
the now one year OUT OF DATE from the VERY LAST UPDATE in the old 6.5 repos is MISSING well a YEARS!!! worth of security updates


if this is a OFFLINE system not connected to the net ( not a big issue)
but if this machine is ONLINE then a very big problem

you are missing a YEARS worth of security updates and fixes

upgrade to 6.6 then install the apache software group
BIG AND BOLD !! i am in the camp that thinks that for the first few LAMP stack installs that you DO EVERYTHING manually and by hand !!!
that way one LEARNS!!! how to set up and configure the Apache software
-- it is a VERY complex bit of software and is VERY easy to set up VERY INSECURELY
-- source builds from the ground up for what apache needs --


but if not then do a LOT of reading

this UPGRADES to 6.6
Code:
su -
yum --releasever=6.6 upgrade
see " yum --help " for the help page
reboot and reinstall third party drivers as needed

then
Code:
su -
yum grouplist
and from that list you should see "web server "
Code:
yum groupinstall "Web Server"
then reboot


then go to http://127.0.0.1:80
and see the Congratulations you installed the Apache web server page

then the HARD PART
setting it up and configuring it and installing a CMS and log stats program and everything else
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/
( ps. i am partial to the CMS " GeekLog" )

No need for "yum --releasever=6.6 upgrade"...a routine "yum update" will work just fine.

rookie5 - you should always update your system befor installing any software from the repo to avoid conflicts.
