apache2 httpd apache server will not start [pid 22449:tid 139972160445760] AH00052: child pid 23248 exit signal Aborted (6) solution Mint Debian Ubuntu Redhat

If you get this error, it is often because you have configured Apache with modules that weren't actually installed.  Eg. you try to load the PHP module but didn't actually install the apache2 php module, so the server can't start.  In general, this error can often be caused by issues with problematic modules and/or Apache being configured for modules that have not actually be installed (eg. libapache2-mod-php) is missing.

The above results in this less than obvious error:

[pid 22449:tid 139972160445760] AH00052: child pid 23248 exit signal Aborted (6) 

Install the missing module into Apache 2 to solve it

In this test case we know the issue is PHP missing from Apache

apt install libapache2-mod-php

Of course if you were using another module, you would want to install the corresponding one.
