Hi,
Apache is running as a service.

When I test the configuration I get an error message stating that it
could not bind to address 0.0.0.0:80
No listening sockets available.

Running netstat -ano I can tell that process ID 4 (system process) is
listening on that port.

When I try to change the "listen port" in httpd.conf to any other
number (90, 8080, 81, etc.) I still get the same error.
When I run netstat, I see that process ID 4 is still listening to port
80 and that Apache is listening to port 90 (or whatever number I
change it to).
However it still fails when testing the configuration.

Tried 127.0.0.1, nameOfServer.domain_name (with and without the port
number).

Running Server 2008 R2. Enabling or disabling firewall makes no
difference. Stopping WAS and W3SVC makes no difference as well.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Mike
