  Log:
  More code-red fallout: many consumer ISPs block port 80, confusing the heck
  out of people trying to run websites on their DSL line.

  +         the configuration of the Apache HTTP Server.  One of the most
  +         common problems is that a firewall blocks access to the
  +         default HTTP port 80.  In particular, many consumer ISPs
  +         block access to this port.  You can see if this is the case
  +         by changing any <code>Port</code> and <code>Listen</code>
  +         directives in <code>httpd.conf</code> to use port 8000 and
  +         then request your site using
  +         <code>http://yourhost.example.com:8000/</code>.  (Of course,
  +         a very restrictive firewall may block this port as well.)</p>
