i checked cPanel Tailwatchd and i got these lines over and over again
Code:
    httpd (/usr/local/apache/bin/httpd -k start) is running as root with PID 14403 (pidfile check method)                                                           .
    httpd (/usr/local/apache/bin/httpd -k start) is running as root with PID 14403 (pidfile check method)                                                           .
    httpd (/usr/local/apache/bin/httpd -k start) is running as root with PID 14403 (pidfile check method)
how can i make the TailWatch to be able to restart the apache automatically
and i want to know what cause this issue
both TailWatch and httpd restart didn't work to restart the apache
