I haven't read the full thread but when I see

machine?  --G

I suggest that you look (netstat -an) who exactly is using port 80 to listen
on, and go from there.

Anyway..  If you go to
http://localhost/ and get a page that states Apache is installed and here is
the test page, then you
have it installed in the correct manner.  If you get the page can not be
found, then you need to look
at your machine locally first.  You do not have a file or the application
pointing to the correct place.

OK.. lets get one thing working at a time.  I am not sure that MySQL will
run on a Win
machine.  I believe that it is only Linux, but I am not 100% on that.  Did
you ever check
with your ISP (By phone or Email) that they do not block port 80??  Sorry if
you already
answered this, but it seems like there is a long pause between when you
answer sometimes.
I understand that you are busy also.  Not trying to be mean.

OK.. so by turning off  your firewall, did not stop apache from seeing the
net.  Do you
get the page that shows you that apache is running??  If you open a brower
and type in
localhost what do you see??  If you do not see the test page, then you are
not getting anything
install, and no one outside will see it anyway.

httpd.conf and consider every entry.  I could sstart all over downloading
Apache then php.  When one downloads the source and compile, do you get to
see the coding??  (silly question).  --G

web site to evaluate alternate therapies for PD.  The process is to
accumulate answers to questions about the therapies (testimonials) and make
them available for viewers.  So, there is an accumulation phase into a
database, then a display phase.  I was working in FrontPage with ACCESS DB
when a friend revealed that not everyone has ACCESS.  Furthermore, my
computer would have to have server duties.  Hence, MySQL, PHP & Apache
combination is a vast improvement.  So what do I want with Apache?  I want
to learn it and use it!!  Ditto PHP.  SQL I think I can handle.  --G

A Static IP is one that is issued to you from your ISP. If you had one you
would know what it is. Trying to run a web server on a line that does not
have a Static IP is not very easy. With a non static IP your IP address can
change every 24 hours, or once a week depending on your ISP.

Why are you installing Apache? Ignore my other message.
