After an upgrade of pure message, you can't start the HTTPD RPC/UI service.  You have this error:

HTTPD start failed - check httpd error log for details

First seen in
PureMessage for Unix 5.5.0


A port number is set in main.conf

What To Do

  1. Open the file /opt/pmx/etc/manager/httpd2/main.conf
  2. If you have a line like:
    Port 18080
    ...delete it and save the file

Httpd will start now with a pmx-httpd start.

If you need more information or guidance, then please contact technical support.
