Is the status of the Httpd service running? If there is an error, the service will be listed as stopped.
Also, you must type in http://127.0.0.1:8079
when attaching to this if you didn't use the port of 80. You can modify C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\services to add the custom port. I don't know why you didn't just use port 80 though; if its unavailable its best to find out what is listening on it (netstat -ab would work, search through it to find the port 80 listening application) and disable it if its not required. 80 should be reserved for web service software such as apache and IIS.
Sounds like you may still have issues with the conf, so make sure that its set the servername.
