1- Try hitting the URL for your webserver from a browser -- if you can access the home page -- your webserver is on!
2- If you don't know what port your webserver is running on, try calling 'netstat -a' from the command line. It will give you a list of ports being used. look for something like :http or :80
3- Check the instructions for your particular web server to find out to start it... each work a bit differently.
4- Try titling your thread
something relevant to the topic instead of "URGENT
" try "URGENT: How to Start a WebServer?
" that way when people are using our search utility, and come across your post, they'll have an idea what the thread is about.
