I tried to upgrade the php on my apache web server so ran:



root@xxxxx:~# a2enmod php7.3
Considering dependency mpm_prefork for php7.3:
Considering conflict mpm_event for mpm_prefork:
Considering conflict mpm_worker for mpm_prefork:
Module mpm_prefork already enabled
Considering conflict php5 for php7.3:
Module php7.3 already enabled

Then ran

root@xxxxx:~# systemctl restart apache2
Job for apache2.service failed because the control process exited with error code.
See "systemctl status apache2.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.
root@xxxxx:~#



Looked at systemctl status apache2.service and journalctl -xe which gave these outputs:


root@xxxxx:~# systemctl status apache2.service

I cannot see anything to investigate in journalctl -xe but systemctl status apache2.service refers to two syntax errors in two files.


Line 140 of /etc/apache2/apache2.conf is:

137 LogLevel warn
138
139 # Include module configuration:
140 IncludeOptional mods-enabled/*.load
141 IncludeOptional mods-enabled/*.conf


Line 3 of /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/php7.2.load is:

1 # Conflicts: php5
2 # Depends: mpm_prefork
3 LoadModule php7_module /usr/lib/apache2/modules/libphp7.3.so

When I look at /usr/lib/apache2/modules/. There is libphp7.4.so but not libphp7.3.so

Tried to go back to previous version. No luck. Tried to move to 7.4. No luck.

I simply do not know enough about php to interpret what is going on. Can anyone help me please? All websites are down as apache will not run.

Thanks

Geoff
