    Exclamation httpd has stopped but its still running.?

    So I ran a status
    Code:
     service httpd status: httpd is stopped
    I tried to start httpd (apache)
    Code:
     service httpd start
    Starting httpd: 
    (13)Permission denied: AH00058: Error retrieving pid file /var/run/httpd/httpd.pid
    AH00059: Remove it before continuing if it is corrupted.
    (I've also tried to remove the httpd.pid, but doesn't resolve this)

    Also tried to stop it
    Code:
    service httpd stop
    rm: cannot remove `/var/run/httpd/httpd.pid': Permission deniedLED]
    rm: cannot remove `/var/run/httpd/httpd.pid': Permission denied
    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.

    Can't figure it out, and I've replicated this issue multiple times after doing full server installs.
