No, sorry. Your httpd comes from CentOS ?

Afaik, you should not have any process running in context init_t except
init itself. If "ps awuxZ | grep [i]nit_t" returns more than only init
and httpd, your problem is likely to be more complicated than a broken
configuration of apache.

If only httpd is concerned, check "ls -Z /usr/sbin/httpd" :
-rwxr-xr-x  root root system_u:object_r:httpd_exec_t   /usr/sbin/httpd 
and try eventually "yum reinstall httpd" ...
