I don't see a "Listen 8080" after the "Listen 80" line.

Just add that line and restart the server.

(usually /etc/init.d/apache2 restart - but might be different in your setup).

You have to resolve the issue of restart.

You must be logged in as  super user account to activate the restart.

Check out the log files and analyze the error reported.
