(Doc ID 2270039.1)
Last updated on AUGUST 04, 2018
Applies to:Linux OS - Version Oracle Linux 5.11 with Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel [2.6.39] and later
"service httpd restart" fails without any error in the output. A server reboot also couldn't fix the issue. e.g. :
# service httpd restart
Stop httpd [FAILED]
Start httpd [FAILED]
There was a lock file in the location /var/lock/subsys/httpd. Removed it and tried to restart the service, it failed again
# rm -f /var/lock/subsys/httpd
Killed all the processes if any using
# killall -9 httpd
Still had the same issue in restarting the service
