Apache2 appears to be starting and stopping continuously as per the apache2 entries log


#1

I recently started using lucee / cfml for web applications on Ubuntu 18.04 with apache2 as I really like the ease of developing in CFML on Lucee. So I setup a new server using the standard Lucee installer with apache2 on Ubuntu 18.04. Most of my experience is on Nginx so I was wondering if I may ask a noob question about the server entry log. I ran journalctl -u apache2.service in terminal to read the apache2 service entries and noted that the server appears to be starting and stopping continuously and was wondering if someone could clarify what this output is? Many thanks in advance for any assistance offered.

Hi Zac, apologies for the big intermission. After digging through a lot more Lucee documentation and posts on installing Lucee I realised that my first attempt at standing up a new Lucee / Ubuntu / Apache2 server was not very good so I decided to try again. The new server instance seems to be working well with no issues in the logs. Thank you again for your time, It is greatly appreciated.
