as root...
Code:
/etc/init.d/httpd start
if you still can't reach it then check your firewall and allow connections on port 80 and optionally for ssl, port 443

try again, you should get an apache test page.

you default webroot will be /var/www/html , so populate that directory with your index.html and try.

Usually a chmod 755 on it will do just fine.
