Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 45863] New: (98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address [::]:80

           Summary: (98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to
                    address [::]:80
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.2.9
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: critical
          Priority: P1
         Component: All
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: apache2@mob.com


Source install of Apache 2.2.9 on RHEL 5 (Redhat Enterprise Linux 5) will not
start and is giving the following error:

(98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address [::]:80
(98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address 0.0.0.0:80
no listening sockets available, shutting down

Searching the net, this problem seems to be widespread (over 7,500 results),
with none of the reviewed threads having a solution.

We were able to pin down the problem - it is caused by the following global
environment variable in httpd.conf:

PidFile run/httpd.pid

Commenting out this line is a quick fix to solve this problem.

As there is no mention of pidfile in the error message, and as it is happening
in the default install of the most widely used Linux Server OS (RHEL5), this
can be a major headache for many installers of the latest Apache.
