any body help me ?

don’t mean to pry but if i connect to the URL you posted with http or https i get "Apache is functioning normally " so apache seems to be running. Check with ps ax | grep apache or sth. like that. It seems to be a problem with your service-manager (systemd is really not the most reliable or logical of them) - try to stop and the (re)start the service with that.

Could be that you have apache2 and httpd installed parallel so that httpd can’t start because port is busy, check who is using your port 80 (http):

sudo netstat -avp | grep http
