Sounds like it's happy starting.

That indicates that the server did not get the request.

Have you tried going to it via or through the IP of the machine?

If, as you seem to have done here, have "Listen 80" without any other Listen
directives than it should bind to all the IPs on port 80.

It seems to me that Apache seems to be quite happy.  Try making a request
using the IP of the machine and let us know how that works.
