For some reason, my apache instances have stopped updating their conf files. I am able to reboot apache without any errors logged and apache will not recognize any changes.
I have gone so far as to actually try to break apache by removing the
</VirtualHost> tag at the end of my .conf file and rebooting only to have it restart without error.
Next I fully removed all .conf files from the apache directory and restarted. Again apache started without error.
I have run updates, upgrades, rebooted multiple times.
How is this possible? How can apache reboot while having no conf files to work with? This is affecting multiple servers of mine, not just an individual one.
