Windows 7 Apache: localhost not found

I have installed Apache 2.2. Service is running but "http://localhost/" (and") returns "not found".

Any ideas?

ping localhost shows no IP address.

nslookup localhost shows address


Solved: Apache listening on Port 8080 - System is using Port 80.

How do I stop System from using Port 80?

Solved again!

Stopped "World Wide Web Publishing" service.

Hope this helps anyone else with this problem.

Is there a text version of the video?

I personally prefer text instructions, easier to search for phrases and skim back and forward through the document.
