Run `netstat -lp --numeric-ports | grep LISTEN | grep 80` as root.

Do you see any output like:
tcp        0      0    *               LISTEN

If so, you've already got something listening on port 80 (HTTP) already, and
need to shut it down before apache can start.  In this case, I have a
program named httpd running as pid 29351.

You can then find out what program has bound itself to port 80 with that

`ps ef | grep 29351` where 29351 is the pid from above

You will then get some output like:
root     29351     1  0 Sep27 ?        00:00:54
/usr/local/apache/bin/httpd -DSS
nobody   31217 29351  2 15:35 ?        00:00:07
/usr/local/apache/bin/httpd -DSS
nobody   31218 29351  0 15:35 ?        00:00:02
/usr/local/apache/bin/httpd -DSS

The first line is the full path to the running process that has bound itself
to port 80 and is not allowing apache to start :)

You've got some other minor issues (name resolution and error logs), but we
can tackle those once you've got httpd running.

Subject: [users@httpd] Problem in the starting

Hi !!!
I just finished to install my Apache 2.0 on a Red Hat 7.1

When I try to start the Apache server I get this error message

[root@LINUX1 bin]# ./apachectl start
httpd: Could not determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using for ServerName
(98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address
no listening sockets available, shutting down
Unable to open logs

Please, help me
