I have to wonder if this is an SELinux issue. Run '/usr/sbin/setenforce 0' and 
try starting the httpd service again. If it works, then you need to tweak the 
SELinux rules so that it can bind to that port. A quick googling tells us the 
way to do this is as follows:

	semanage port -a -t http_port_t -p tcp 8081

To see the ports allowed for Apache (the http_port_t context):

	semanage port -l | grep -w http_port_t

Hope that helps.
