The first error is because non-root users cannot bind to ports lower
than 1024. The second error means just what it says: The address is
already in use, so you can't bind to port 80. Something else is already
bound to it; probably you have an HTTP server already running as part of
your default software installation and don't realize it.
Choose another port.
