install apache as root, but not under the /root/ directory

[edit] try running ./configure, make, and make install -- don't try and manually config it, and i think it'll work much better for you[/edit]

IT WORKS IT WORKS!!!!! *HAPPY DANCE*
Ok I have the IP sorry if you read the before I edited it... But I need to know what port its on is it 80?? because I think my ISP blocks port 80 from being used. If it is another port I would appreciate any info . I also need to know how to set FTP up so I can upload files to this machine so I can do updates without actually being at this machine.

ALSO Thanks VERY MUCH AGAIN AND AGAIN!

port 80 is commonly blocked by ISPs -- 8080 is a common replacement, thought that needs to be in your conf file... (Listen 8080)

--moreover, you need to open up your router/gateway/whatever to pass this port along to your PC unless your PC has an IP that is not reserved --not 10.x.x.x OR 192.168.x.x OR 172.x.x. (i think those are all...)

FTP = new problem, please start a new thread...

ok I changed it to 8080 and I also changed the default IP to my current IP to listen on and I think I made things worse..... Now whenever I do http://localhost/ it tells me Connection refused and same when I type my IP in my Address bar... So what do I do now????

You need to specify the port http://localhost:8080 if your server if running on port 8080. Your WWW browser can't magically tell that the Web server is running on a non-default port.
