Previously working, but now
Address already in use: AH00072: make_sock: could not bind to address

Probable Cause:
Any two or more .conf files have Listen 443 or <VirtualHost _default_:443> in them.

Tentative Solution:
Edit your /etc/httpd/httpd.conf or other /etc/httpd/conf.d/*.conf files making sure you don’t have two files requesting port 443. It seems recent Apache versions are more strict and will fail to run, whereas older versions did not complain. Technically, I just the renamed /etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.conf to /etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.conf.OFF so that my actual /etc/httpd/conf.d/live_ssl.conf file was used.

  1. I had to revisit this days later. You are better off moving your config into /etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.conf rather than having a separate file. Future updates may re-enable the default file otherwise. Of course, make a copy for backup purposes.
