The default httpd.conf contains a:

    Listen 80

directive, which will cause apache to bind to all available interfaces
and listen on port 80.  You probably need to change that.  In fact, I
believe that 'Listen' is nowadays preferred to the 'BindAddress' and
'Port' combo and that 'BindAddress' and 'Port' have been phased out in
apache 2.x
