Default freshbie-help on installing php/apache


I had installed apache 2.0.48 intially and it worked fine. Then I installed PHP(php-4.3.8-installer.exe). Then I followed some online instructions to configure apache for PHP and everything messed up...i made some changes in httpd.conf and everything goofed up...the error message from then on..was

(OS 10048)Only one usage of each socket address (protocol/network address/port)
is normally permitted. : make_sock: could not bind to address
no listening sockets available, shutting down
Unable to open logs

later i tried to revert back the httpd.conf to initial condition but apache was never to work.
So I uninstalled and got to see this forum where there was step by step procedure to install php and apache. So I reinstalled apache 2.0.50 this time..but then it doesnot start at all. the same error message mentioned above occurs.
I have also restarted the system several times following every uninstallation and reinstallation.

Please help me in fixing this error and also in succesful installation of apache/php.

My system is in network and it is a win xp pro

thanks in advance,

you likely have another web server on port 80 already.. like IIS...
