Hi I am running  a Raspberry Pi 3B+ with a version of raspian.  


When it does a soft reboot the webpage server Apache2 won't start.  


Can i adjust a initialising file to ensure it starts every time?  Can I get an example of that please?  


If I remove the power adaptor for at least 10 seconds it will surely start.  TIA

That is pretty slow - I would replace it with a proper SD card. It looks like that may be the reason for Apache timing out. This is only a guess as during boot the system is doing quite a few other things which could explain why a service bails out from starting.


This is mine with a Class 10 SD:
209715200 bytes (210 MB, 200 MiB) copied, 10.4511 s, 20.1 MB/s


However note also, this is also a High Endurance SD card as it has quite a few logs written to it (so is slower, but more reliable).


SD cards are cheap. Stay away from the Sandisk Ultra cards as they have rubbish controllers in them, but consider grabbing a Samsung Evo card and giving that a go - you can use something like w32diskimager or dd on *nix to image the old card to the new one.
