Yes, that's there

I'll try netstat, but ps shows it's there.

That's a useful command I didn't know about.

With the upgraded Apache install, I let it go to their default
locations, so it was "/usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl start" to do
the manual start.

That was dry except when I changed "ServerType StandAlone" to
"ServerType inetd", when it was full of complaints about not being
able to write to (? open a socket on? it's the home machine, so
this is from memory) port 127.
Maybe the problem has to do with the loopback device? All I want
here is to test PHP scripts locally, so it will only ever get
called from localhost.
