Apache won't start because it is trying to get localhost.crt
« on: April 30, 2022, 04:05:18 AM »
Apache on my server won't start because /etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.conf is trying to get /etc/pki/tls/certs/localhost.crt which doesn't exist.

Apache logs:

apache should be in /usr/local/apache

so you had a previous version of apache installed before you installed CWP.  The directions clearly state that you must have a clean install OS with NO software installed.

On a side note, you can simply "mv /etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.conf /etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.bak"

I installed on a clean OS, it was the first thing I installed. I did in the past switch to Nginx but I had switched back to Apache.
The command you said did work. Thank you.
