Hi,

Why I am getting the following message on the apache restart

Apache restarted, but pid file does not match process list pids.

If apache restart reported success but it failed soon after, it may be caused by oddities with mod_ssl.

You should run /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/ssl_crt_status as part of your troubleshooting process. Pass it --help for more details.

Also be sure to examine apache's various log files.


Please note that litespeed also installed on the server.

Hello :)

I suggest temporarily disabling Litespeed and enabling Apache to rule it out as the cause of the problem. After switching to Apache, see if you notice any particular error messages in /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log while attempting to start the service.

Thank you.
