So basically you cannot connect to your server. Let's see traceroute results? Any firewall in place?

Dale, Thanks for the quick response. I just realized that to get my apache server back up i had to reconfigure it to listen on port 8081 instead of 80. so everytime i typed localhost in the url bar it automatically goes to port 80. so i typed localhost:8081 and it worked! Thanks for your suggestions though it got me thinking
