For Windows Server 2008, after an automatically downloaded update and server reset our Apache server stopped. Error logs read as follows:

The Apache service named reported access a socket in a way forbidden by
its access permissions. : make_sock: could not bind to address 0.0.0.0:80
Logged 12/10/2016 9:04:13 AM (the time the server downloaded and reset a
Windows update)

Also:

The Apache service named reported the following error: no listening
sockets available, shutting down.
The Apache service named reported the following error: unable to open logs.

The way to fix this (because simple restart doesn’t work) is to open a command prompt and type:

iireset/stop

Thereafter restart Apache by running:

services.msc

Pick Apache, and hit start.

Or you can pick any other way you want to restart Apache.
