something else is running on port 80,
run netstat -nap to see what it is.

probably another httpd process, stop/kill the previous one and try again.

something else is running on port 80, probably another instance of apache, do "killall -9 httpd" then try restarting httpd

Check your "Listen" directive.

Should be "Listen 80" or "Listen 192.168.1.1:80" etc..

Perhaps its already running? Do you get this at startup or when you start it yourself, and yes please, more details on your setup?

I've merged your two threads with almost identical
contents...

For future reference: please stick with one thread
in one forum and be patient.


Cheers,
Tink

Sorry about that, the two posts were accidental....I ran the netstat -nap and there were two screens full of information. Some listening and some connected. What exactly am I looking for?
I only noticed the fail to start when I rebooted the server, I then went in and tried to start it and got that error message. Having no problem hitting the server remotely or any other problems that I can see at this point. Running Linux 9....Thanks
