Setting up LAMP results in "Could not connect" messages in browser

view full story

https://bbs.archlinux.org – I am trying to set up a LAMP stack on my desktop, mostly for development purposes. I followed the instruction in the LAMP page in the wiki to the letter: checked that the http user existed, fixed the http.conf and rc.conf files, started the http server. When I try to connect to localhost, however, instead of the usual Apache page I get a " "Could not connect" message. I tried to connect to localhost, to, to the local IP address om my box (i.e the 192.168...), and to my actual (non-DNS registered) hostname. To no avail.The error log has some info that may be relevant. W (HowTos)
