Bad Request (Invalid Hostname) in apache localhost

I have apache and php installed on my local machine, but when I tried accessing it today I got a bad request invalid hostname error.
I have to manually start apache since I don't need it running most of the time, but today when I try starting it up I see it flash open and then immediately closes. But I am not getting a server not found like I would think that I would see if it was a problem with apache not being started.
I check the apache error logs but I don't see any errors.
I am running apache off of port 8080 and the httpd.conf file still has Listen 8080 and
ServerName localhost:8080 listed and this is what it has been for a while and was working last week sometime and I haven't changed anything that I know of.
Any ideas about what I should check would be greatly appreciated.

Do you have another application that is listen on port 8080? Is It posible that you had installed a new software after last succesfully execution of apache?

Try the command line before launch apache

netstat -na | find "LISTEN"

to see if port 8080 is in use.

for 0.0.0.0:8080 it just says TCP and listening
I did just install sql server 2008 r2 though.
Any ideas about how to tell if that is using this port?
fundacionrtsAdministrador de SistemasCommented:
netstat -nab show the executable associated to the port. I recommend you that you redirect the output to a file, an the open with text editor to see better:

netstat -nab >> c:\test.txt

SQL Server 2008 R2 Reporting Services could by listen on 8080 by default (depending of your OS version)

That was it exactly.
I had to go into the reporting services configuration manager and edit the web service url port and the report manager url port and then apache fired right up and everything seems to be working fine now.
Thanks for the help.
