Attempts to start or stop apache web service on Server > Services page fail with error

ERROR: PleskFatalException
Unable to make action: Unable to manage service by websrvmng:
websrvmng: No such file '/usr/local/etc/rc.d/':
No such file or directory System error 2: No such file or directory


Apache startup script name is specified with the following variable in /etc/psa/psa.conf file:

#apache startup script

Find out what the actual apache startup script file name is, it may be either apache2 or

# ls /usr/local/etc/rc.d/apache2*

then set the correct value in /etc/psa/psa.conf for HTTPD_SERVICE variable.
