Apache is a little tricky when you remove parts of it. Open your httpd.conf file.  Change it to
#NameVirtualHost *
see if that works for you.  I don't know if you use any virtual hosts.  But you probably aren't using it. If you still have problems add a # on the:
### Section 3: Virtual Hosts
# VirtualHost: If you want to maintain multiple domains/hostnames on your
# machine you can setup VirtualHost containers for them. Most configurations
# use only name-based virtual hosts so the server doesn't need to worry about
# IP addresses. This is indicated by the asterisks in the directives below.
# Please see the documentation at <URL:http://www.apache.org/docs/vhosts/>
# for further details before you try to setup virtual hosts.
# You may use the command line option '-S' to verify your virtual host
# configuration.

# Use name-based virtual hosting.
#NameVirtualHost *

# VirtualHost example:
# Almost any Apache directive may go into a VirtualHost container.
# The first VirtualHost section is used for requests without a known
# server name.
#<VirtualHost *>
#    ServerAdmin webmaster@dummy-host.example.com
#    DocumentRoot /www/docs/dummy-host.example.com
#    ServerName dummy-host.example.com
#    ErrorLog logs/dummy-host.example.com-error_log
#    CustomLog logs/dummy-host.example.com-access_log common

#<VirtualHost _default_:*>

the last part (could not bind to address ...) means that apache could not use the address specified. have you specified an ip address in httpd.conf next to the Listen option? if so, try setting it to just the port (80) i.e.

Listen 80

or if you have multiple addresses, ensure you have one of your addresses listed there i.e.

Listen xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:80

alternatively, ensure you have no other application already using port 80

About (98)Adress already in use: make_sock: couldnot bind to address

ps -aux | grep nobody

If you have some processes using your apache directory, kill them and restart apache.
