EHCP will not start after reboot
« on: October 30, 2015, 04:31:04 pm »
My server had to be restarted a couple days ago and now I can't access any of the EHCP system. Apache won't start and everything else won't start as well. What can I do to fix this?

Thanks,

Hi Brandin,

What do the logs say? 

Check the apache error logs:

Code: [Select]
sudo cat /var/log/apache2/error.log
sudo cat /var/log/apache2/error.log.1

They should tell you why the web server will no longer start.  Please post your output of the logs here if you are not sure what to do.

The first command doesn't display anything and the second command shows this:

cat: /var/log/apache2/error.log.1: No such file or directory

Sorry, make sure you run them with sudo access.  What version of Ubuntu are you running?  Do you see a log file for apache in /var/log or /var/log/apache2? 

Code: [Select]
sudo -i
cd /var/log
ls -alh

and

Code: [Select]
sudo -i
cd /var/log/apache2
ls -alh

You need to find the Apache log.  It could be in a different location depending on your operating system and version.  When you do, tail or cat the file to see what's going on.

I am running Ubuntu Server 14.04.3 LTS. I have log files and checked them. All log files are blank.

And what happens when you run this command?

Code: [Select]
sudo service apache2 restart
