The ps command can be used to determine if your system is using init or systemd. If PID 1 is init, then you will use the service command. If PID 1 is systemd, then you will use the systemctl command.

If your system is using systemd, use the systemctl command to start and enable httpd.

systemctl enable httpd
systemctl start httpd
systemctl status httpd


If your system is using init, use the chkconfig and service commands to start and enable httpd.

chkconfig httpd on
service httpd start
service httpd status
