I don't think you understand.  In httpd.conf EVERYTHING looks like comments.
EVERYTHING.  Not somethings but EVERYTHING.
This is an issue of linebreaks not appearing in Notepad which is what I am
using to view the file.
When I tried posting in this post what it looked like to me the line breaks
appeared correctly.
I have fixed the issue.  But only because when I tried to post the way the
file looks to me the linebreaks became clear which they wer NOT viewing
in Notepad.

There was no installer in this installation.  The way it works is like this:

Cygwin | Setup | Apache | done.

That's it no more and no less.  That's all.  Once that was done I was at the
mercy of reading
locations on the web what to do to get it going and the fact that the
were not appearing in httpd.conf I was at a loss where to change the port.
