Only processes owned by root can bind to ports < 1024. If you cannpt
start apache as root, you must Listen to a higher port. e.g.

	Listen 8000

Then you should be able to see your site with:


(i.e. if the port is not equal to 80, you must specify it in the URL).

BTW, I am assuming that you have an IP address for your machine and that
"your-server" resolves to this address. 

If you don't have a network card, use localhost, i.e.

	Listen and http://localhost:8000/
