What this means is simply that there is already an application running
that has bound to port 80. You new apache needs this port so can't
start. This is probably a webserver - like your previous version of
apache? Having looked into your logfile, I see you're running linux, so
something like "netstat -a | grep '*.80'" should show you something
listening on port 80 and "ps -ef | grep httpd" will show if you have any
apache process running.

BTW, This is a completely different error to your first posting ("config
log tells me there are a number of fatal errors")...
