accf_http is not compulsory for apache to work.

did you add  the enabling line in /etc/rc.conf? For version 2.2 it should be


( you actually need to check the startup script at /usr/local/etc/rc.d/, in
this case /usr/local/etc/rc.d/apache22 to see what _enable line is needed )

then you start the webserver with 

/usr/local/etc/rc.d/apache22 start

( or 'forcestart' instead of start if you don't have the _enable line in

Also, make sure you have no firewall in place stopping the traffic.
