	I don't know what's up here, but I updated the system ( no [testing] ), and
rebooted to load the new kernel, and http was dead. On start, the error said it
couldn't bind to port 443 because it was already taken -- Huh?

	Here are what little details I could come up with:

[23:28 nirvana:/home/david] # lsof -i | grep 443
[23:28 nirvana:/home/david] # apachectl stop
httpd (no pid file) not running
[23:28 nirvana:/home/david] # apachectl start
(98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address [::]:443
(98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address
no listening sockets available, shutting down
Unable to open logs

	First time I've seen this one. The latest system update completed fine, so I
should be up to date. Apache is:

apache 2.2.15-2
php-apache 5.3.2-6

	the kernel is:


	I have a second x86_64 Arch box where the hardware and config is close to what
I have on the problem box and apache it was working fine.

	I don't know what the issue was because the problem cured itself on reboot.
This is just fyi in case anyone else experiences the same issue.
