Do you have a /var/run/httpd directory?

I am running an Apache server with CentOS 7 installed. I'm having issues starting apache using
the command systemctl status httpd.service as I would get the following message:

Job for httpd.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl
status httpd.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.

Here is the output of systemctl status httpd:

httpd.service - The Apache HTTP Server

Here is what I tried so far. I tried checking if any process is running on port 443 using
the command netstat -an | grep 443, but it showed nothing.

I tried checking the httpd.conf and ssl.conf files and see if there is a 'Listen 443' on both
but there isn't. It is only in ssl.conf.

That's all I've tried so far but I'm open to any suggestions you may have.
