Hello and welcome to LQ.

You haven't provided much information above, but my guess is Apache is already running. You have to either start it on a different port, or stop the existing processes to start the http daemon again. You may have a start-stop-restart script installed depending on your distro that will do that for you. Maybe with something like:
/etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Good luck!

-Chad
