Maybe due to my lack of knowledge.

It's likely that the server process is not running at all. Are you sure
you started it?

Also, Apache 1.3.14 is very very old. Consider installing a more recent
version, which will run better on Windows, and will have many fewer
bugs. (Or at least different ones ;)
