apache in fedora not working

I am running the latest version of redhat fedora and trying to use the pre-installed http configuration services. I set it all up to what i believe to be is correct but then when i go to check if i can connect to the ip all i ever get is: "the connection was refused when attempting to connect to the target ip xxxxxxxx" . Am i missing some kind of permissions or something? I set the server name to my ip address, to listen to all available ip addresses, left the rest as defualt and added a basic index.html page in my /var/www/html directory which appeared to be what the server wanted to use as the root dir.

any help would be appreciated.

Did you enable the firewall during the install process? You may need to make some rule adjustments.
