Configuring Apache on CentOS 5.7

I've purcheased a vps and installed apache2. As developer i've been doing this hundreds of times with no problem. Now I'm facing this: netstat -nao outputs apache2 is listening on :::80 but not on

I get NO errors at all. Logs have no errors too.

Ideas? Links? Blog posts? Thanks!

What exactly is the problem your facing. – Iain Jun 1 '12 at 8:43
I would expect from netstat listening socket... but I only get :::80. So when trying to browse it obviously refuses connection – user1170896 Jun 1 '12 at 8:45
Did you open port 80 in your firewall ? – Iain Jun 1 '12 at 8:47
Yes. but didn't work. Anyway I think I should see listening even if a firewall is blocking it... Am i wrong? – user1170896 Jun 1 '12 at 8:48
My centos system says the same and works as expected, your problem isn't one of binding. – Iain Jun 1 '12 at 8:55

Binding to :::80 means that it is listening to both IPv4 and IPv6 connections; this is not causing your problem.
