There is no excuse needed to use Windows. I just cannot help.

What do you mean by going fully online? Running on port 80?
The simplest solution is to let the one-click image do everything by
itself. Then you don't need apache. Evaluate
WAKom startOn: 80
and your one-click image will listen on port 80. On Unix systems you
need to be root to be able to listen on ports below 1024, I don't know
if this is the same on Windows. Also make sure to stop any running
Apache instances that might occupy port 80 beforehand.
