So I ran a status
I tried to start httpd (apache)
service httpd status: httpd is stopped
(I've also tried to remove the httpd.pid, but doesn't resolve this)
service httpd start
(13)Permission denied: AH00058: Error retrieving pid file /var/run/httpd/httpd.pid
AH00059: Remove it before continuing if it is corrupted.
Also tried to stop it
If i go to the website, its alive. so apache is still running. and using "top" shows activity to httpd. why does it say its stopped and not allow me to restart httpd.
service httpd stop
rm: cannot remove `/var/run/httpd/httpd.pid': Permission deniedLED]
rm: cannot remove `/var/run/httpd/httpd.pid': Permission denied
Can't figure it out, and I've replicated this issue multiple times after doing full server installs.
