If you are facing this error while restarting XAMPP, the reason may be your virtualhost file. (/opt/lampp//etc/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf)

Check your virtual host file if there is any garbage text in it and Apache is not able to understand it.

Garbage text means half closed tags, copy-paste unnecessary data etc

Check your file closely and make necessary corrections.

and remove the file httpd.pid.
sudo rm -f /opt/lampp/logs/httpd.pid 
Now restart xampp. You should not face this problem again.
