System update killed httpd.service

I had used the GUI to do a system update and it started to error and eventually the page was unresponsive so I went to the terminal and found the httpd service dead. Here is the error it’s giving me.

? httpd.service - The Apache HTTP Server
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/httpd.service; enabled; vendor preset: disabled)
   Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Wed 2023-01-11 21:36:39 EST; 46min ago
     Docs: man:httpd(8)
 Main PID: 989 (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)

I have seen this sometimes doing distro upgrades. Try running yum reinstall httpd and see if that fixes it.

systemd mains a journal for all services

journalctl -u httpd.service

should show why httpd failed
