    apache2ctl /etc/apache2/configtest


    what should I do? Please help.
    Steps I have already taken:
    1. Removed all apache2 files multiple times to hard uninstall it and reinstalled it again and again

    Re: Apache server not working

    I don't know why it cannot find /usr/sbin/apache2. That should be installed when you run "sudo apt install apache2". Try removing and reinstalling the apache2 package again, then check to see whether the executable /usr/sbin/apache2 exists.
    If you ask for help, do not abandon your request. Please have the courtesy to check for responses and thank the people who helped you.

    try
    Code:
    ls -la /usr/sbin
    to see if apache2 is there, and what its permissions are.

    in a terminal, issue
    Code:
    apache2ctl -S
    and show us the output please.
    Windows assumes the user is an idiot.
    Linux demands proof.
