Subject [users@httpd] Cannot access any webpage using localhost
Date Sun, 06 Nov 2005 22:08:39 GMT

I have Apache 2.0.55 running as a service in Windows XP SP2. I visited
lots of sites regarding installation and configuration of Apache. My
config file is ok, I didn't change it yet. The name of my server is
localhost in port 80. I can stop and restart the server without
problems, but when try to access the test page (http://localhost/) the
browser try for a long time to access the page, but then I get the 'The
page cannot be found' message.

The value of DocumentRoot is correct. I renamed the proper html file
(portuguese) to index.html. If I open that file directly, I can seee the
test page for Apache.

I don't know if this is correct or not, but when I write on ms-dos
console (cmd) 'netstat -noa' I see that the 80 port is assigned to the
IP ( In the utility program Active Ports from <>, 
<,> I get the
(Apache.exe). My windows host file (.../system32/drivers/etc/hosts)
contain the correct information: localhost

Ping works ok

I try to disable anti-virus, firewall, but nothing works.

For two days I'm trying to solve the problem without success.
