If the server is running, and the messages below are all you see in your error 
log, you shouldn't worry.  Everything looks normal, including the file.  That file should be removed as part of a normal shutdown, 
its presence is not an indication of a forthcoming crash.

You invoke httpd with -X directly, not through a script.  Make sure Apache 
isn't running, find out how httpd is started in init.d, add -X, and type that 
command into a shell as super-user.
