The Oracle HTTP Server will not start using "opmnctl startproc process-type=OHS" and it returns the following errors:

-->  Process (index=1,uid=##,pid=##)
  time out while waiting for a managed process to start

The <instance_home>/diagnostics/logs/OHS/ohs1/console~OHS~1.log shows the following message:

<webTier>/ohs/bin/apachectl hardstop:  httpd stopped



The following steps were taken to determine what was preventing OHS from starting.

1.  The processes for httpd were grepped using "ps -ef | grep httpd" and then "kill -9 <pid>"; remove the opmn/states directory and use "opmnctl startproc process-type=HTTP_Server".  OHS still fails to start.

2.  The <start timeout="300" /> was added to opmn.xml file as described within < Note: 821419.1> (OPMN Fails to Start HTTP Server - "Time Out While Waiting For a Managed Process to Start"), but the OHS still failed to start.

3.  The "apachectl start -f $httpd_conf" allows OHS to start. 

a.  Create a script, call it, and put in these commands:

5. Now uncomment each include line in the httpd.conf file one by one.   When the webgate.conf file is uncommented out, then OHS does not start.
