cPanel: Cannot access directory '/etc/apache2/logs/domlogs/'

When trying to restart Apache, you may be presented with an error message as follows:

(2)No such file or directory: AH02297: Cannot access directory '/etc/apache2/logs/domlogs/' for log file '/etc/apache2/logs/domlogs/domain.com-bytes_log' defined at /etc/apache2/conf/httpd.conf:286

To fix this, run the following commands:

mkdir /etc/apache2/logs/domlogs
chown root:wheel domlogs
/scripts/restartsrv_httpd

An output such as the below should be displayed if the restart was successful:

# /scripts/restartsrv_httpd
Waiting for “httpd” to start ……waiting for “httpd” to initialize ………finished.
