Re: httpd driving me crazy.

Which shows nothing Listening on port 80. One again FC6 has done me in.
Any explanations?

It's not FC6's fault :-)

The behaviour is to do with a TCP connection that was made to the server while it was alive, that hangs around for some time, 60 seconds or whatever after the connection was closed on one side... that is what it is meant to do.

If you amend your netstat to just -n and grep on :80, you should see the client connection shown in TIME_WAIT. After the timeout completes, you will be able to start Apache again.
