When you stopped httpd, did the server stop serving pages? If not, check 
what is connected to port 80/443 - as David mentioned before, or with my 
personal favourite:

     netstat -plunt

I'd add tailing the apache logs, too, so you can see if your requests 
are really hitting the web-server, or as David says, some kind of 
front-end cache:

     tail -f /var/log/httpd/*log

Also worth trying is checking any rewrite rules in the apache config or 
in .htaccess files.

Finally (if you *really* need to get to the bottom of it) backup your 
apache config, and strip it down to the bear minimum (by commenting it 
out), gradually re-introducing sections until you track the problem 
down. As apache's config for any given location/directory/virtual server 
etc. is an accumulation of global and higher-level settings, it can 
sometimes be difficult to work out what the settings for one particular 
object will be.

Hope that helps,
