    Resolution:
    Cause:

    The http.pid file has been deleted, possibly as a result of server_admin_util filesystem maintenance deleting files in the apache directory without confirmation. Therefore apache cannot be stopped.

    Resolution

    To solve the matter we need to kill off the apache process manually and restart the instance apache.

    To identify processes to kill:

    ps -ef | grep apache | grep sfxlcl3

    kill [children process]

    Then restart apache using server_admin_util.

    Additional Information

    apache error, no listening sockets available, rev-up
