Hi
try:
netstat -ant |grep LISTEN and see who hold the port :80 and after that find httpd folder or apache2 usually it is located in
/etc/httpd/conf and open httpd.conf with any text editor and find string listen :80 and change it to IP you need .
Adn restart /etc/init.d/httpd restart.

Hi,

The netstat is a good starting point to find out if something is using port 80. But judging from the icon below the OP's username he's using a Debian based distro (Ubuntu). Hence the configuration files are different:

Global configuration = /etc/apache2/apache2.conf
Listen directives = /etc/apache2/ports.conf

(if I'm not mistaking).

Restarting should be on Debian based:
Code:
/etc/init.d/apache2 restart
Kind regards,

Eric
