I don't think I understand what aspects of the documentation
you feel are deficient.  You *do* need to set your server's
ServerName directive.  Running the server as root is a
very very very bad idea.  You must be running with
superuser authority in order to use apachectl to start
and stop the server; a permission problem would seem
to indicate that you're not root when you tried to start
the server.
