FC4 Apache Failed

I had FC3 on my server and have just upgraded to FC4. I started with a complete fresh install. I had a copy of my httpd.conf file and entered everything the same as it was before but now I get a error everytime I run apache that it has failed. I used to listen on port 8888 before the upgrade but now if i change it from anything but port 80 it fails to start. If I leave it at port 80 it works fine. DOesn anybody have any answer to why it Apache is giving me so much trouble?

You probably have a firewall, such as iptables, running in the new FC. Port 80 is probably left open be default, but if you need other ports to be accessible you'll specifically need to open them somehow. I don't know how to do that, but it might be a place to start. Google for an iptables faq - I strongly suspect your problem is that the new FC has setup iptables for enhanced system security, and that is preventing your Apache listening on port 8888.
