I can't make Apache/WAMP start after I removed a vhost, and it doesn't start after I restored the config. This is driving me nuts :)

Starting it from the command line doesn't give me anything.

C:\wamp\bin\apache\Apache2.2.11\bin>httpd.exe

C:\wamp\bin\apache\Apache2.2.11\bin>

Tried debug mode:

C:\wamp\bin\apache\Apache2.2.11\bin>

But if I try to start it from Services, it actually says it fails. From the Windows Event log:

The Apache2.2 service terminated with service-specific error Incorrect function..

My first thought was that something (Skype) was using port 80, so I scanned open ports, but don't see it is being used:

Sorry for the super long question. Hope somebody knows what might be going on!

I've voted to close this, as development environments and toolsets are off-topic. This is probably better suited for SO or SU. –  MDMarra Sep 13 '13 at 13:04
