Hi, guys;
I am just starting to learn how to use servlets. I tried to install Apache web server on my computer (wind98) but I could not get it working for me. After installation, I tried to start the server and in dos console it showed the message:
Apache running...... When I tried to access http://localhost:8080 via internet explorer, i got the error message:
cannot access localhost:8080 offline.
What was wrong?
anybody out there using Apache server, please help!

I had a simular problem a month ago...
Is your machine connected to a network...
If it is... somewhere on your network localhost my already be defined.
I have installed apache 1/2 dozon times already...
It should not take more that 30 minutes...
P.S. I develop database software.. and have learned how to use
web servers by the school of hard knocks..
good Luck

8080 is the default for tomcat, not apache.
http://localhost should work for apache.
I think 80 is the default for apache.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
