the basic reason for that error is may be your other application is using
the port 8080. may be your IIS or may be some tomcat or something else.
So now after changing that you got all the things working. :)
The message "It works" says your apache is working fine. Check out your
doc_root there must be some index.html which says "It works". In apache2 you
will get a test script to test your server is working fine or not.
just try to write <?php phpinfo(); ?> and see how the things are coming.
[off-topic] - the mail you have given below is not matched with your mail,
from where you have sent the mail. :) lol.
