problem in using AOLServer and Apache on same machine at different ports

I am using a Ubuntu virtual machine.Where I installed OpenACS which
depends upon AOLServer.
To do so I had first shutdown Apache on this machine.
Then following instructions given here

Step 1)
 aptitude install postgresql

Step 2)
 aptitude install openacs

I had to shutdown Apache to do above installation.
Now the installation finishes.So I can access http://localhost:8000

but when ever I try to start Apache on this machine which was shutdown
during installation I see the error
 service apache2 start
  * Starting web server apache2

                          (98)Address already in use: make_sock: could
not bind to address
no listening sockets available, shutting down
Unable to open logs

So I thought may be OpenACS installs AOLServer so Aolserver might be
listening on port 80 I check
and here


So AOLServer is not listening on port 80 upto here it is confirmed.

  netstat -tualp  | grep 80
tcp  0      0 somemachine.somedimain.:8000 *:*   LISTEN   21321/aolserver4-ns

so netstat shows only 8000 in  use.
Then why am I unable to start Apache in this case?
