Forum Thread: Apache2 Error Kali Linux

I've never had problems with my apache webserver before. I was just using it two weeks ago. This time when I ran 'apache2 start', rather than just starting like normal, it displayed menu options.

Hmm, that's odd, never had that happen. Ok no big deal, there was prolly an update. I can read instructions. I enter 'apache2 -k start' and receive the following string of errors:

Rut roh. Any suggestions? I have no clue what could have caused this to happen. I haven't touched anything, and in fact I have another computer & I get the same msg when trying to run apache on that one too

I had this error on Parrot 2.1 some time ago as well. Just upgrading my system seemed to solve the problem. I have no idea what caused it either.

If you haven't done it already, try doing an upgrade? (you know, the classic "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade" command).


thx for your reply. It turns out all I needed to do was run 'apache2ctl start' and it worked! I never had to end 'ctl' at the end before but oh well. just happy it's all good now.

Question out of curiosity: did you use Kali 2.0?


I figured it out, thx for your suggestion though :). Turned out all I needed to do was run 'apache2ctl start'. Never had to do that before but oh well. Whatever's clever!
