I have an Apache server listening on port 10801 (running on Amazon linux EC2 instance). I have updated the inbound rule for the security group with custom TCP rule to allow all traffic to port 10801. The process is listening on port 10801
>> sudo netstat -tulpn | grep :10801
tcp 0 0 :::10801 :::* LISTEN 24534/httpd
When i hit the port number from my browser, it simply spins and fails. I see multiple questions like this and almost every one asks to update the security group which i have done already. Still unable to reach the service through port 10801. Everything works if i run the server on port 80. Seems like im missing something here, any help is appreciated.
I started an instance on amazon ec2, ami is ubuntu 14.04. I followed the steps on https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/putty.html exactly up until "Transferring Files to Your Linux Instance Using the PuTTY Secure Copy Client" Since I don't need to put files on there just yet. Then I followed the following: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP.
"To install the default LAMP stack in Ubuntu 10.04 and above
First refresh your package index...
$ sudo apt-get update
... and then install the LAMP stack:
$ sudo apt-get install lamp-server^
Mind the caret (^) at the end. "
After that I tried
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
After which ubuntu said:
httpd (pid 5549) already running
Yet when I try to browse with chrome to the public ip which shows in the amazon console I get

In my browser. What am I doing wrong?
