    you have something else listening on port 8080, proberly a proxy server of some description.

    Turn it off, or configure apache to listen on another port (like the standard 80/TCP for example..). You can control what port apache listens on by editing your httpd.conf file. look for a line like "Port 8080" and change it.

    use "netstat -ant" to check the port is not in use before trying to start apache.

    Also ensure you are starting apache when you are logged in as root.

    Maybe some firewall rule...

    Maybe a firewall rule or something?

    Have you a firewall running, and/or blocking unprivp ports?

    Just a guess...

    could u check the complete httpd.conf file for any reference to that port. I think webserver would be trying to bind a port for administrative access or something cause by default webservers bind to port 80
