I am unable to "Verify the instalation is successful"

HTTP://localhost return
An error occurred while loading http://localhost:
Could not connect to host localhost

Apache2 is NOT running here is what I have done so far
1- edit httpd.conf removed the extra / from Directory/
2- commented out ifDefine surrounding oSSLEngine on
3- modified vhost-ssl.conf added a closing </Files> which was missing

now when I run apache2 configtest it return Syntax OK , but still
fail to start

checking the logs I dicover that OES is not updating
when i checkmark the subscrition box it appear to do something, then it
red-carpet(?) die
