no listening sockets available, shutting down

The Error:
[root@Server httpd]# /etc/init.d/httpd start
Starting httpd: [Mon Aug 18 07:39:26 2008] [warn] module ssl_module is already loaded, skipping
(98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address [::]:443
(98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address 0.0.0.0:443
no listening sockets available, shutting down
Unable to open logs
                                                           [FAILED]

Came by this error and could not figure it out why Apache/httpd would not start, upon further investigation it turns out there

where 2 instances of Listen 443 in these 2 files:
/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
/etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.conf

The Fix is to remove one of the Listen directives from either of the files.
