PHP macports

Hello there!

A few months ago, I installed php with your help. I finished my work, and
everything was alright! But I haven't used it since then. Now I type
localhost on safari, and I get this:

Safari can’t open the page “http://localhost/” because Safari can’t connect
to the server “localhost”.

AM I doing anything wrong? I typed on the console "port installed" and I get
this output, amongst some other things:

  php5 @5.3.1_1+apache2+darwin_10+macosx (active)
  php5-oracle @5.3.1_2 (active)

So php is still there! I tried to find php.ini to see if it's everything ok
with it. So I went to this folder /opt/local/etc/php5/ to look for it. And
it wasn't there! Instead, there were two files: php.ini-development and
php.ini-production. I googled about this matter, and I found that with this
new php version this is supposed to happen...

Then I ticked Web Sharing in the system preferences, and then I type
localhost on the browser. It works but I think it's using the previous
version of php, the one that comes with the computer. I assume that because
I got an error when accessing an oracle data base. In the php installation
from macports, I got oracle data bases working.

Does anyone know what should I do?
