Apache2 fails to start on boot (but subsequent manual starts work fine)

I migrated a virtual machine running the Apache 2 web server software on Debian wheezy GNU/Linux from Bytemark's legacy virtual machine infrastructure to their new BigV infrastructure. Staging this on my internal virtual infrastructure worked without a hitch. However, on the true infrastructure, Apache failed to start on boot with the following message. It would restart without issue if I then logged on and started it manually.
