Local pid not found" or "no such pid" (or "no such process") message in trying to bring up apache after a power failure.
This was resolved by a slight variation on the answer in US PRB 9876:
Run these commands as user aleph:
>mv httpd.pid httpd.pid.old
You do not need to do this operation as root unless apache is not running on the privileged port (80). Otherwise, it doesn't need root privileges.
If for some reason the apachectl_auto doesn't work in bringing up apache, you can use whatever other normal method.... The thing is to get rid of the obsolete httpd.pid. apache will recreate it with a new value: the message, "no such process", appears when apache was not gracefully shut down on the previous run and the file httpd.pid still exists, but the process no longer runs.
