#BindAddress *
<IfDefine APACHEPROXIED>
Port 8080
Listen 8080
</IfDefine>
<IfDefine !APACHEPROXIED>
Port 80
Listen 80
</IfDefine>

Why do you have Apache listening on port 8080? Don't give up hope. If you can not access http://localhost or http://your.ip.address.here then apache is not running. Either there is something misconfigured in your httpd.conf file or you haven't started apache.

/etc/init.d/httpd restart

Does this tell you that apache stopped[OK] and started[OK]?

This is exactly what it says in the terminal:
============================
Shutting down httpd-perl: [ OK ]
Starting httpd-perl: [ OK ]
Starting httpd: [ OK ]
**BLANK LINE** [ OK ]
**BLANK LINE** [ OK ]
[ root@whoracle root ]#
============================

I originally thought that it should list Apache in there somewhere, but, I'm new to Linux, and wasn't sure. Any ideas?

Oh, and for the Port 8080, thats the way its setup, haven't changed a thing.

Apache is the Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Deamon, httpd.

Why did you pay $150+ for something? Apache is free... You mean for ProSuite?
Try downloading apache2, it's only 5.25megs

Only problem with that...I'm a total Linux n00b, and will probably screw something up I'm not even sure how to install something on Linux yet...other than by CD. What can I say. It really doesn't matter to me, if I can get my 1.3 version of Apache to work...I'm content

Hey, I'm really new too.
Been addicted to using prebuild .rpm packages so far, but now I'm starting to gunzip, ./configure, make, make install a few things like apache. Not hard, just a few commands and waiting for the compiling (not long on this beast)
Hardest bit is reading up on what non-default options you want to pass while doing this.

I have httpd-2.0.4.4.tar.Z downloaded...and have opened it with GnoZip, but have no idea what to do from there...I've read the whole installation guide on Apache.org...but it seems to be directed towards rocket-scientists

If you've extracted the .tar.gz, then navigate into the folder it created, and open a terminal (Assuming KDE and Konqueror)
The type su
Enter the root password
Then type ./configure
If you get through that without an error, type make
Again, if no problems, type make install
Should be installed now

As that was from memory, I might have forgotten something. Check the readme and install (text) files in the extracted directory.
Specifying the install directory seems to be missing from my explaination

Whoracle-the easiest thing to do at this point is to uninstall apache and then re-install it. Since you've been tinkering around in those conf files for so long you may have changed something that is hidden in the depths of your filesystem.

Also my suggestion would be to install the rpms instead of by source. A lot of people are die-hard about installing from source but I find the rpms much more noob friendly.

If you do take my suggestion this is how you locate, uninstall, and re-install apache as root from a command prompt:

1. Locate Installed Apache Packages

rpm -qa | grep apache

You should see a listing off all installed apache packages.

2. Uninstall Apache Packages

rpm -e apache*

3. Install Newly Downloaded Apache Packages

Download all the latest apache packages from wherever you can find them. To install them, change to the directory where you downloaded them and issue this command:

rpm -ivh apache*

As I said before this is only a suggestion so if you don't feel like uninstalling and re-installing thats fine. I just think it would be a little easier to configure apache now that you've finished with your trial-and-error method. When I first started using Linux I was the king of uninstall re-install because I screwed up the conf files so much.

Wouldn't a .rpm be unofficial though, and it's a nice way to start learning the little install dance?

I'm all ears for suggestions, so I unzipped httpd-2.0.4.4.tar.Z, ran the ./configure command, and it says "No acceptable C computer found in $PATH"

computer or compiler?
Didn't you install the developers packages when installing Mandrake? You're kinda gunna need a few common things, like gcc as a c source compiler
Fire up rpmdrake and break out your cds.

Ok, delete that extracted directory and unpack a fresh one.
Now try the same again, but this time use ./configure >attempted_install.txt
That should be the command to dump the output into a txt file it'll create.
Then when the same error stops the process, we can look back up and see what it found when looking for an acceptable c compiler.

aha! I did find that the compilers are not installed. So if I install the compilers...it should install it correctly?

Yes it should install it correctly. You need those computers I mean compilers to install from source.
