You're using IPv6 which is not so good in LAN in comparison to IPv4. Check your apache configuration file and add the listening interface adress. Familarize yourself with the pache configuration file(s) and directives.

What exactly you want to do with apache http server? You want to use to access only localhost via http (in a web browswer)?
Under /etc/apache2/ folder you can find sites-available and sites-enabled folder in which you can put the configuration file for your virtual hosts. Also the ports.conf file contains the configuration for listening ports (port 80 for http and 443 for https).

I am wanting to be able to access my files remotely also soon to host a small web site

David, this is not a Ubuntu specific question and maybe even beyond the scope of what Launchpad is for. Don't get me wrong but there are literally thousands of resources online which guide people through the installation, configuration and (secure) operation of webservers like for e.g. Apache. ;-)

A. Denton I am sorry this is not a question that suites your definition of an "Ubuntu" specific question!
 I will mark it solved hope this meets with your approval!
