Check the apache error logs in /var/log/apache2 and tell us what it says so you can get some help! –  djthoms Jan 29 '13 at 5:48
::1 - - [28/Jan/2013:10:40:04 +0530] "OPTIONS * HTTP/1.0" 200 126 "-" "Apache/2.2.22 (Ubuntu) (internal dummy connection)". This is what it contains in the first line –  Chella Jan 29 '13 at 5:54
Copy the relevant information from the error.log file in that directory. You might see something like [Mon Jan 28 10:46:00 2013] [notice] caught SIGTERM, shutting down –  djthoms Jan 29 '13 at 5:56
Yes it is there. What should I do now. [Mon Jan 28 19:25:45 2013] [notice] caught SIGTERM, shutting down –  Chella Jan 29 '13 at 6:03
@djthoms: Will you please tell me what to do –  Chella Jan 29 '13 at 6:06

I resolved the issue..! It was due to, some other process using the same port 80. so it was unable to run. I found out process and killed and restarted the apache server.

It is working now.
