Web Sharing and File Sharing is on and checked.  But when I type in the
Safari browser " http://localhost/" I get the message "Safari can't open the
page "http://localhost/" because the server unexpectedly dropped the
connection. This sometimes occurs when the serveris busy. Wait for a few
minutes, and then try again."

Which is why they told me to I need to reload Apache.

1. Do you think I should reinstall Apache?

2. If so I downloaded httpd-2.2.17 and it is sitting on my desktop. Where
should I put that folder?  I keep all of my websites in the site folder.

Thanks for helping me with my extremely novice questions.
