Using RedHat 6.2, apache-1.3.12-2. When starting httpd response is httpd started OK, however in error_log file the following is displayed:- [day month date time year][crit](98)address already in use:make_sock:could not bind to address x.x.x.x port 80.
Also there are no processes (httpd) running when listing via ps -ax. When checking the status of httpd the response is - httpd dead but subsys locked. Issuing the stop command returns Failed, reloading command returns Failed, start command returns OK. Have even tried uninstalling and re installing apache but problem still persists. Would appreciate any pointers or clues as to what to try next.
