for starting the "httpd" service:
in a console as root run this command: setup
then, go to "System services", mark "httpd", press "ok", then "quit"
and that's all; next time when you boot your Fedora you will have "httpd" up and running.
now, regarding the other problem you've mentioned, i did not encountered. Please go though the above steps and see if the problem persists.
