Apache failed to start with the “No space left on device” error.

Login to server via SSH.

Check the apache error logs you are getting while restarting plesk.

================================================

-[notice] suEXEC mechanism enabled (wrapper: /usr/sbin/suexec)
[error] (28)No space left on device: Cannot create SSLMutex
Configuration Failed

================================================

How much IPC resources are used can be found using ‘ipcs’ command:

 ipcs -a

run the below command to check the apache resource usage.

ipcs -a | grep apache

Run the below command to get the apache resource ids.

ipcs -a | grep apache | cut -d ” ” -f2

Delete all the apache resource files using the below command.

for i in `ipcs -a | grep apache | cut -d ” ” -f2`; do ipcrm -s $i; done

Again, check the apache resource usage.

ipcs -a | grep apache

Run, the below command again to check the IPC resource usage.

ipcs -a

Now, restart apache using the below command.

/etc/init.d/httpd restart
