If you had successfully installed Apache2 webserver on you PC, you can test it by firing up your web browser and place:

http://localhost

at the address bar and press the Enter key, a message like below should appear:

It works!
This is the default web page for this server.
The web server software is running but no content has been added, yet.

HTH.
