It seems like a simple port configuration issue but for the life of me I 
cannot remember how to fix it.

I installed Oracle-XE the DB is running but port 8080 is not active.

ps -deaf | grep oracle
oracle    5715     1  0 07:48 ?        00:00:00 
/usr/lib/oracle/xe/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/server/bin/tnslsnr LISTENER 

netstat -l  shows there is no port 8080 listening ?

/etc/services - shows default configuration

webcache        8080/tcp                        # WWW caching service

configuration Steps taken:

Specify the HTTP port that will be used for Oracle Application Express [8080]:*<enter>*

Specify a port that will be used for the database listener [1521]:*<enter>*

Specify a password to be used for database accounts.  Note that the same
password will be used for SYS and SYSTEM.  Oracle recommends the use of
different passwords for each database account.  This can be done after
initial configuration:*password*
Confirm the password:*password*

Do you want Oracle Database 10g Express Edition to be started on boot (y/n) [y]:*<enter>*
