I'm assuming you mean "weird"; otherwise, I'd be trying to figure out
how your Ethernet cable figures into this problem. :)

Question number one: is Apache the _only_ web server that you have
installed? What is '/usr/sbin/httpd' - is it a binary, a link to a
program, or what? I've run into this kind of problem before (PHP would
or would not work, mysteriously, until I figured out that I was starting
one of two different web servers.)
Some tests you could run:
strings -a /usr/sbin/httpd
Conversely, you could try

Your startup scripts may be starting one server, whereas you may be
starting a different one. Do realize, by the way, that the control
script for apache2 is called 'apache2ctl', not 'apachectl'.
