I put in the path to where the executable file that's also the web server is.  That's the
docroot, since it's also where the static assets are.  As for a URL where it works, it's only
my internal IP so far.

In my router's settings, under NAT > Virtual Servers, I have these two rules for the port
Server Name     External Port Start     External Port End       Protocol        Internal Port
Start     Internal Port End       Server IP Address       WAN Interface   LAN Loopback   
Enable/Disable  Remove
 Secure Web Server (HTTPS)       8443    8443    TCP     8443    8443    ppp2.1
 HTTP    8080    8080    TCP     8080    8080    ppp2.1 Disabled is my internal IP address.  I'll try again after setting my server app first
and then Apache, but for now, does this look okay to you?
