    Is your apache service running?

    try:

    service httpd start

    ...or "apachectl start" as root. To see if httpd started run "ps ax | grep httpd".

    my apache is running...everything is ok but mozilla can't connect to the web server. i have also tried with other browser in my distro(redhat 9).

    i have set the ip as "LISTEN 127.0.0.1:80" also have tried with some other ips but still it isnt working... i have also specified:

    ServerName localhost:80
    ServerAdmin root@localhost

    this way... but still it isnt working...any idea?

    Do you have firewalling configured to block port 80? That would prevent connections from anywhere.
