ISPmanager 5 Lite Documentation

If errors occur while starting ihttpd

This is documentation for an outdated product. See the current documentation


If "Failed to start daemon" or "Failed to become daemon" errors occur when starting ihttpd, an error in /dev/null may be the cause. To eliminate the error:

  1. Check the format, owner, and rights of the /dev/null file:
    ls -alh /dev/null && file /dev/null

    An example of response

    crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 1, 3 May 17 12:36 /dev/null
    /dev/null: character special
  2. If the response to the command does not match the response in the example, remove the /dev/null file and recreate it:
    rm -f /dev/null && mknod /dev/null c 1 3 && chmod 666 /dev/null
  3. Stop the running ihttpd processes:
    killall ihttpd
  4. Start ihttpd:
    systemctl start ihttpd
    service ihttpd start
