How to debug services in Debian if they fail to start

I have a new Debian unstable based distro with apache2 on it. Apache itself is working fine. If i use

sudo service apache2 start 

it comes up and everything goes well.

But the service for it fails to start every boot.

How to trace the error here?

etc/log/apache2/error.log:
