Hey that comes pre-installed with linux no?

Any way here is a check list that might help you

* Check whether you have permissions in the folder to create log files.
* Check if the apache port is conflicting with another application that might have opened the same port (Try changing this port number in your HTTPD.conf file)
* Try restarting your webserver (Apache) service.
