Re: [users@httpd] Apache Will Not Start

you will have to also add the ‘Listen’  directive in your ‘httpd.conf’ file too. Default is port 80 but you can change this to either include or just 443.

I am running an Apache server with CentOS 7 installed. I'm having issues starting apache using the command systemctl status httpd.service as I would get the following message:

Job for httpd.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status httpd.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.

Here is the output of systemctl status httpd:

Here is what I tried so far. I tried checking if any process is running on port 443 using the command netstat -an | grep 443, but it showed nothing.

I tried checking the httpd.conf and ssl.conf files and see if there is a 'Listen 443' on both but there isn't. It is only in ssl.conf.

That's all I've tried so far but I'm open to any suggestions you may have.
