Ubuntu 14.04 with Apache 2.4.7

I just recently removed PHP 5.6 and upgraded to PHP 7.2 on my system. At the same time I updated all packages and now I am getting an error when I try to reload Apache. This used to work fine before.

Output of sudo systemctl reload apache2:

Failed to issue method call: Unit apache2.service failed to load: No such file or directory. See system logs and 'systemctl status apache2.service' for details.`

Output of sudo systemctl status apache2:

apache2.service Loaded: error (Reason: No such file or directory) Active: inactive (dead)

In /var/log/apache2/error.log I can see:

[mpm_prefork:notice] [pid 16005] AH00169: caught SIGTERM, shutting down

I have tried removing and re-installing apache2 but still having this problem. Any other way I can debug this problem?

  • What happens if you restart the service? sudo systemctl restart apache2 Perhaps you can disable some sites and test if apache can restart sudo a2dissite ... – Boba Fit Jun 12 '18 at 13:46
