Hi everyone I have a problem on Apache2 (on ubuntu). My server does not starts up and when I enter systemctl status apache2.service I see this;

        ● apache2.service - The Apache HTTP Server
   Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/apache2.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)

Most likely either Apache or another webserver (e.g. nginx) is already running. To check for that, grep the process list for apache, httpd and nginx or use netstat -anp | grep ':80\s' to find out.

After you have understood which process uses port 80, you can decide if you want to terminate it or if you have an unsupported configuration and can't use Apache on port 80
