  How did you kill all the httpd processes?  Usually, this message
  indicates that apache was stopped through some means other than
  './apachectl stop' and the file gets left.  When you
  then attempt to restart apache, the process notes that the
  file still exists, although no httpd process by that pid is running.
  Hence the error message.
