I changed etc/apache2/ports.conf and wrote **.***.**.***:80 but when I want to restart the apache2 I see the following error:

(99)Cannot assign requested address: make_sock: could not bind to address **.***.**.***:80

What can I do? Please help.

is .*.**.***:80 the real value you put in your config or are you obscuring the value here in the question? – Sergey Aug 13 '12 at 8:03
just for the question – Peyman Aug 13 '12 at 8:11
Is the address you're entering a real IP address of one of your machine's network interfaces? Do you have another process already bound to that IP/port? – Sergey Aug 13 '12 at 8:31
Yes the IP address is a real IP address. no I have not. – Peyman Aug 13 '12 at 8:34
