    Default HTTPd won't start

    I've (a green noob) struggled all day to start httpd without success. When I attempted to restart our VMS to see if that might solve the issue, it hung up and would not start either. Finally, I opened a support ticket and our VMS was restarted in record time (thanks, Spry, for the great service), however failed to start again immediately --except maybe briefly for the technician.

    According to Google and the Virtuozzo manual, I should stop Xinetd and then try to start httpd --Xinetd won't stop so that failed as well. Google also mentioned a possible problem with rpm and the resolve.config which I have rebuilt --still not success.

    Our set up is Linux with Cpanel, WHM and Virtuozzo.

    Any help would be very much appreciated.

    What errors are generated when trying to start httpd? If you login as root from the command line and type:
    Code:
    service httpd configtest
    that should provide you with either a list of warnings and/or errors, or a simple message 'Syntax OK.'

    More specific information from the console, the error logs, or the WHM interface will help us narrow down the possibilities for you.

    Question Issue Solved

    It appears that VZPP is not designed to work with cPanel and gives a false report of httpd not running. I guess VZPP works best with Plesk.

    When checking WHM httpd is working as it should.

    Should I install Plesk instead of cPanel or should both be running?

    Please consider switching to a Plesk VPS plan, rather than attempting to run two control panels simultaneously.

    (Running Plesk with cPanel will cause unresolvable conflicts - these two control panels cannot coexist peacefully as both take over basic system services and do not agree on any one configuration)
