Problem :

sudo service httpd start

Failed to start apache :
Job for httpd.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status httpd.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.

Solution :

From your above error:

“no listening sockets available, shutting down”

What basically it means, that if any port in which one of the apache is going to be listening is already occupied by some other application.

netstat -punta | grep LISTEN

Above command will give you the list of all your ports being used and its information needed to recognize which process is this so that you can kill stop or do According to your need with it.

This will help you in resolving your error.
