To upload files to your files you can use FileZilla :

User: root
Password: You know it.

At the moment I am not home,but I would create a Tutorial how to install Apache right. If it is OK for you to wait :-).

Until that you can do this :

sudo apt-get purge apache2
sudo apt-get autoremove
sudo rm -r /etc/apache2
sudo rm -r /etc/php5 (if you installed it)
sudo apt-get install apache2

I mean both, thanks!

Yeah, i got it! :D But, thanks!
