apachectl status will tell you if it's running. apachectl fullstatus will 
give more details and info about current connections.

The logs will tell you about attempted/successful/failed connections (for 
requests that reach the server.)

If there's no log info then that means no connections were attempted and 
as was suggested a firewall (router or software) may have blocked it.

It's even possible to configure the server such that it's running but told 
to not respond to any requests.

ping www.domain should produce a response, again though as long as nothing 
blocks it and the server is not configured to ignore them.

tcpdump can show if traffic is at least attempting to knock on the 
server's door.

Did it -used- to work, but now it fails, or is this a new install/config?

Have a :) day!
