    If you don't get enough information in the logs increase the log level. The mentioned error however indicates a problem with the backend server the apache proxies to. – Gerald Schneider Jul 12 '17 at 7:07
  • Do all the httpd processes vanish? httpd can't stop itself. – covener Jul 14 '17 at 21:43
