Subject [users@httpd] Install issues
Date Wed, 14 May 2008 01:51:15 GMT
This may or may not be an install issue.  I downloaded the most recent 
version of Apache 2.2.8 (Win32).  I downloaded the installer, and ran 
it. This was a clean install as Apache was not on the system previously, 
and IIS is not on the system either.  My operating system is Windows XP 
Media Center.

Apache appeared to install properly, and the Monitor indicates that 
Apache is running properly.  There are no apparent errors in the log.

The problem is I cannot connect to the server.  When I point my browser 
at http://localhost/ it just sits there spinning, waiting for 
something.  If I stop the server I immediately get an Unable to connect 

Unable to connect
Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at localhost.
    *   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again

    *   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, 
make sure
          that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

Something is happening but I just don't know what.  Can anyone provide 
some assistance?

BTW, the FAQ said something about making sure that there is a valid 
ServerName line in the config file, so I made that "localhost".  And the 
Windows DNS Client service is started.
