Apache Configuration Question

Ubuntu error with apache: (98)Address already in use

I am getting this error when I try to start Apache in Ubuntu.

(98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address 0.0.0.0:80
no listening sockets available, shutting down
Unable to open logs
Action 'start' failed.


I have this in my ports.conf

NameVirtualHost *:80
Listen 80


This is my vhost file

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerAdmin example@example.com
ServerName rails.server.com
# ServerAlias
DocumentRoot /var/www/sample_app/current/public
ErrorLog /var/www/sample_app/error.log

RailsEnv production
<Directory "/var/www/sample_app/current/public">
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
</Directory>
</VirtualHost>


What am I missing?

Answer

It seems port 80 is already taken. Use another port or try netstat (grep the result to select only the row with value 80 in it), ps and kill to see what application occupies the port and shut it down.
