Thanks, DaKar. I don't seem to have this:

root at ety:/etc/apache# /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd start
-su: /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd: No such file or directory
root at ety:/etc/apache# /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd stop
-su: /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd: No such file or directory
root at ety:/etc/apache# man httpd
No manual entry for httpd
root at ety:/etc/apache#

I may have made a mistake. I installed apache, then apache2 via
apt-get. I did work then ( returned the default apache page
to me). I then removed apache (via apt-get) and just to be safe
reinstalled apache2. Now it does not work (unable to connect to server

Must apache be installed for apache2 to work? What am I missing?

Thanks for the patience.
