All apache needs is just the two lines:
port: 8080 and Listen 8080 

The stuff which starts with the # sign are comments. 
The port and listen are apache directives.

Check your running processes,  you may have apache running and not know of 
it's where abouts. Under Linux that's ps aux | grep httpd.  You'll find one 
httpd which you started under your userid or uid and on for each child that 
apache spawns from the startserver command.
