Address already in use: AH00072: make_sock: could not bind to address [::]:443

It looks like you have another web server running already, listening on port 443.

Maybe nginx?

You can check with ss -tlnp, look for 443 and the rightmost column will have process name.

then i kill the process?

[email protected] ~]$ ss -tlnp
State Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address:Port Peer Address:Port
LISTEN 0 100 127.0.0.1:25 :
LISTEN 0 128 *:22 *:*
LISTEN 0 100 ::1:25 :::*
LISTEN 0 70 :::33060 :::*
LISTEN 0 128 :::3306 :::*
LISTEN 0 128 :::22 :::*

Hmm, I don't see any other server (in your output of ss). Strange.

Can you try ss -tlnp with sudo? I mean sudo ss -tlnp?
