shell-init: error retrieving current directory: getcwd: cannot access parent directories: No such file or directory

Today I saw an interesting error ,while restarting apache
=======
]# /etc/init.d/httpd restart
shell-init: error retrieving current directory: getcwd: cannot access parent directories: No such file or directory
Stopping httpd: [ OK ]
Starting httpd: shell-init: error retrieving current directory: getcwd: cannot access parent directories: No such file or directory
[ OK ]
]#
===========
may be you also face this or already faced.
Don’t surprise …Just do a  ” cd  / ”   , or  cd  to any direcotry ..  it will fix the error !!

This happen as the current working directory from which the command was fired does not exits on the server.
