I'm trying to start XAMPP server via :

$ sudo /opt/lampp/lampp start

Get me :

Starting XAMPP for Linux 1.8.3-0...
XAMPP: Starting
XAMPP:  Another web server is already running.
XAMPP: Starting MySQL...ok.
XAMPP: Starting ProFTPD...ok.

As you can see above, all packages run successfully except Apache.

Please tell me what to do ?
