How do you get the httpd service to start in Linux after an outage?

I have a Fedora Core Linux box that is being used as a web server. However, we recently had a power outage, and after the outage the httpd service would not start. Here is the status of the httpd service:

***************
[root@pptp1 sbin]# service httpd fullstatus
ERROR at home.c:150: Unable to find or create ELinks config directory. Please check if you have $HOME variable set correctly and if you have write permission to your home directory.
ELinks: Connection refused
***************
[root@pptp1 /]# service httpd start
Starting httpd: (30)Read-only file system: httpd: could not open error log file /etc/httpd/logs/error_log.
Unable to open logs
                                                           [FAILED]
***************

You may also see the attached ErrorLog file for more details.

Please help with getting the httpd service started.

are you in single user mode?

please run

who -r

and if in single user mode try to go to multi-user mode by running

init 5

to remount root filesystem in read+write mode use

mount -n -o remount /

did you make sure the disk on which the document root or home directory of user apache is working ?
if so can you access it. try to reboot manually and fsck all the file systems.
maybe some files are corrupted.
