I hate to wake up this old thread again, but I also have this problem and 
a search of my list archive doesn't seem to indicate a solution being 
offered.

This was an install on a fresh disk when I installed FC6 in November 2006.
httpd has never been able to start, but with vz blocking port 80, I didn't 
see it as being something to worry about.  Last night vz assured me they 
are not blocking any ports, so I thought I'd set up a server so I could 
call them a liar.
 
I've used smart to remove httpd and the mod_friends, including the 
service-config-http utility, and then re-install them.  After the 
re-install I had to run the system-config-http utility else it couldn't 
bind to address 0.0.0.0:80, and after I had allowed system-config-http to 
overwrite the conf file, then I got the above error. Looking 
at /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf with vim, I found a bunch of blank line 
trash at the start of the file, that when removed, reset the error 
address above to line 156, but it is still the same error.

This is what was re-installed by smart:
[root coyote conf]# rpm -qa |grep http
httpd-2.2.3-5
jakarta-commons-httpclient-3.0-7jpp.1
system-config-httpd-1.3.3-1.1.1
httpd-manual-2.2.3-5

No idea where that jakarta stuff came from, but the grep caught it.

What has been the resolution to this problem for FC5-6?
