CentOS Auto Starting Apache httpd Automatic Start with System
In the example shown in the image below, Cent OS was accessed through an SSH connection utilizing Putty.
Auto-start Apache httpd service at boot time
The process and steps are simple and straight forward.
Let's look for the status of httpd to see whether is is setup to auto-start with the system during reboot , restarts, etc.
1. Run the command chkconfig --list | grep http .
For the output, you will see a series of OFF settings as shown in the accompanying images.
2. Run the command chkconfig httpd on
There is no output to this command.
If completed successful, ie. no errors, the command prompt is returned on the next line.
3. Run the command from step 1 again to confirm, chkconfig --list | grep http
In step 1 we saw a series of OFFs, after set to on we see ONs instead
