Can everyone tell me how to make apache2 to listen ONLY on port 8080 and how to make root directory /home/alex/www

You should use Listen or BindAddress to tell Apache2 what to listen to.

To change the root directory, open a terminal and type

sudo gedit /etc/apache2/sites-available/default

then change the DocumentRoot path from /var/www to your desired directory
