    Hi,

    Recently my Apache web server down for unknown reason. Luckily, I'm online at that time to start Apache.
    When this problem occured more than two times, I tried searching internet and found the way to automatic start Apache when it died.
    SEMrush
    - Create a .sh file, e.g /usr/local/startapache.sh with this contents:
    
    #!/bin/sh
    pgrep httpd
    if [ $? -ne 0 ];
    then
      service httpd start
    fi
    
    Code (markup):
    - Chmod it to 0777
    - Set a cron job every minute with that file
    crontab -e
    Code (markup):
    Enter
    * * * * * /usr/local/startapache.sh
    Code (markup):
    Press Esc -> :x -> enter
    Restart crond
    service crond restart
    Code (markup):
    And done!

    Hope this help :)

    Hey you guys,

    I just found a simpler way:
    - Set cron job every minute with this command:
    pgrep httpd || service httpd start
    Code (markup):
    So, your crontab entry will look like this:
    * * * * * pgrep httpd || service httpd start
    Code (markup):
    Very simple :D
