You might run into a situation where while trying to restart apache service while using linux web hosting services, you receive an error :

(20014)Internal error: Error retrieving pid file logs/
Remove it before continuing if it is corrupted.

There is nothing to worry about, you must run the following commands to get apache working again.

Rename or remove it from the logs directory of apache (/usr/local/apache/logs/) and restart the apache service.


[email protected] [~]# cd /usr/local/apache/logs/
[email protected] [/usr/local/apache/logs]# mv
[email protected] [/usr/local/apache/logs]# /etc/init.d/httpd restart


The Apache service would start work fine after this.
