You should start your own thread instead of leeching one that is 6+ years old.

so apache is trying to bind port 443 and that port is already in use.

do a "sudo lsof | grep TCP" and see which application is keeping that port open. It can be a torrent program, skype, or a number of applications which work over http

In my case, I had thoughtlessly installed the 'nginx' server on my Ubuntu system -- which then grabbed the port from apache2.

When I changed /etc/apache2/ports.conf values of
NameVirtualHost *:80
Listen 80


NameVirtualHost *:8080
Listen 8080

and got apache2 started, both servers were then up: nginx at and apache2 at

So I simply uninstalled nginx (also nginx-full and nginx-common) -- and set /etc/apache2/ports.conf port values back to default. Apache is now at Knock on wood.


apache, bind, http
