Solution:

– edit the follow file /etc/apache2/sites-available/wsgi-keystone.conf
– Comment the first two lines that Listen 5000 and Listen 35357
– In previous version we bind this ports for keystone URI.So from this version it will automatically detect by keystone.
– If you configure the same again it will conflict with the existing port and effect on apache2 service stop.
