"Must be uid 0" is the same as saying "must be root".  There are some
"ulimit" commands in apachectl that require root permissions on your
system.  You either need to su before running apachectl or, if you are
running apache on a non-priveleged port, you can edit apachectl and remove
the ulimit lines.
