Job for httpd service failed because the control process exited with error code

0 votes

Hi Guys,

I installed httpd web server in my system. But when I tried to start its service, it shows me the below error.

$ systemctl restart httpd.service
Job for httpd.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status httpd.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.

How can I solve this error?

Hi@akhtar,

This problem is caused due to SELinux. It is not allowing apache web server to start its service. Follow the below given steps.

$ getenforce
$ setenforce 0  
$ systemctl start  httpd.service

Hope this will work.

Hope this helps you!

Hi guys

I was facing same problem as yours. Let's see how I have resolved this problem.

First login to your root server through SSH by using login and password.

First Command:-

$ sudo su

Second Command:-

$ sh /scripts/generate_hostname_ssl

Then 3rd command:-

$ systemctl status httpd.service -l

Now check it:-

$ journalctl -xe

Its done.
