apache is probably listing on a interface or port

in your apache's configuration, make sure Listen is something like "Listen 80"
also make sure that, if your using "BindAddress", make sure it equals "*".

another problem could be apache is dieing on you before it even loads up.
if you don't know what it's doing (applies to anything really), always check the logs.

hope that helps

Well everything seems correct, I think apache isn't loading for properly for some reason, not to sure though.
