Apache cookbook fail to start Chef

I write a cookbook on Chef.But I got an error.


package ‘apache2’

service ‘apache2’ do

action [:enable, :start]


file ‘/var/www/html/index.html’ do

content ‘<html>


<h1>Hello World</h1>






STDERR: AH00558: apache2: Could not reliably determine the server’s fully qualified domain name, using Set the ‘ServerName’ directive globally to suppress this message

(98)Address already in use: AH00072: make_sock: could not bind to address [::]:80

—- End output of /etc/init.d/apache2 start —-

Check your open port below command.

sudo netstat -ltnp | grep :80

vagrant@swarm-manager:~$ sudo netstat -ltnp | grep :80

tcp        0      0    *               LISTEN      628/dockerd

Docker service is using port 80

service docker stop

And run again cookbook.Its successfully done.
