I run the apache50 stop/start exactly as told to by the pset, but when I go to the website it is still stuck on cs50 finance. This is making it impossible to start pset8 because I can't even get the website working. Even after running apache50 stop but not start the website remains up. How can I force it to change?

If apache50 stop is not stopping the Apache2 server process, you may have a "zombie process." Luckily, it can be killed! Try executing:

sudo killall -9 apache2

to terminate the process with extreme prejudice.

Hopefully, once you do that, apache50 stop will work again as expected.

EDIT:

To resolve your permission issues, check out my Definitive Guide to 403 Forbidden / permissions / chmod on the CS50 Reddit.

  • OK I did that and now the cs50 finance site is down, but now I just get 403 forbidden. I did all the permissions as told to in the pset.
