Distro switch ubuntu->xubuntu; apache not listening....
 
When I boot this machine into ubuntu 11.04, the apache server works for me.
I've installed Xubuntu 12.04.1, and am trying to get its apache server
to do the same. I thought I copied all the config stuff, and
rebooted.
However, this setup does not have a user 'apache' like the old one
does. I configured apache to run as that user. I'm not sure what
user xubuntu expects apache to run as.

Should I just create user and group 'apache"?? It seems too easy.

Ubuntu and Xubuntu use the exact same packages for Apache, they share
a repository.

Did you install Apache via the package manager? Is Apache running, but
just not serving pages? You can also take a look at
/var/log/apache2/error.log to see if there are clues there.
