    Apache problem on Fedora


    Hello!
    I've installed Apache web server 2.2.3 in Fedora, but it doesn't work!The installation process is correct (I guess, I did everything as it says in the guide), but for some unknown reason it is not working!When I type into my browser http://127.0.0.1 I get an error message, The proxy server is refusing connections!
    We turned off the proxy, but it makes no changes!
    Can anyone help me out of this!
    Or at least give me some hints what is wrong!
    Maybe we have to make changes in the httpd.conf file???
    Thanx in advance!

    It works finally!
    The problem was that the iptables firewall was turned on, but I did not know, as soon as I switched it off, the welcome page appeared after typing http://localhost!
    Thank you for your help!
    This is just the beginning to me, we have to set up the apache, configure it as the prof says, and finally test it with the webalizer!
    It's a long way still to go!-)))
    If I will encounter other problems maybe I will need someones's help! (Your's..-))))
