I was having some trouble with Apache2 and reading the web it seemed in uninstall reinstall should sort the issue.

I did that following this link.

I've now reinstalled apache but as soon as I run service apache2 status I get the following

● apache2.service - LSB: Apache2 web server
   Loaded: loaded (/etc/init.d/apache2; bad; vendor preset: enabled)
  Drop-In: /lib/systemd/system/apache2.service.d
   Active: inactive (dead) since Tue 2018-05-29 16:41:31 UTC; 2min 5s ago
     Docs: man:systemd-sysv-generator(8)
  Process: 19421 ExecStop=/etc/init.d/apache2 stop (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
  Process: 19412 ExecStart=/etc/init.d/apache2 start (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)

I'm running on Ubuntu 16.04.

  • What it says when you run sudo systemctl start apache2.service?

  • Nothing, blank line. But it isn't running
