Apache won't start - address already in use

Hi everyone, I’m having a mare on one of my servers running VirtualMin. Its running the CentOS7 OS.

Today, I rebooted it and Apache is refusing to start!

When I look at the log, I see the following (I’ve replaced the IP address with xxx)

Apr 28 16:06:29 linden-d2 httpd: (98)Address already in use: AH00072: make_sock: could not bind to address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:443

Can anyone help at all?

The error is clear: Something is listening on port 443. Either Apache is already running, or you’ve got something else running on that port. Figure out what it is, and then you’ll know what to do about it. This command will tell you:

# netstat -ltnp |grep 443
