Apache won't start - error_log shows the following error message:
Permission denied: make_sock: could not bind to address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx port 443/80
The problem might be:
1. /etc/denied_ports has been edited or someone changed it's ownership to the VDS owner instead of root:root.
2. The IP of the VDS is down on the server.
to check this please use the following steps:
a. cat [vds_base]/bin/vds_ip to see the VDS's IP
b. ifconfig | grep [vds_ip]
c. If you get nothing it means that the IP is down.
d. raise the IP by using the following command: ifconfig ethx:x [IP] netmask [netmask] up
