    Website not being hosted


    Hi again. Now that i have everything sorted out, i am ready to host my website. I am able to see the page on the actual server browser, but i am not able to connect to it from an outside source. i have a feeling i have to somehow open port 80 but i am new to this and have no idea what to do. If you can help i would greatly appreciate it.

    Scratch that least message i figured out what was wrong with the iptables. Now i just have to configure it correctly to allow port 80 which i still need help on.

    This is what i get when i put
    # service iptables status:

    Table: filter
    Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
    target prot opt source destination
    RH-Firewall-1-INPUT all -- 0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0

    Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
    target prot opt source destination
    RH-Firewall-1-INPUT all -- 0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0
    ACCEPT tcp -- 0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0 tcp spt:80

    Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
    target prot opt source destination

    Chain RH-Firewall-1-INPUT (2 references)
    target prot opt source destination
    ACCEPT all -- 0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0
    ACCEPT all -- 0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0
    ACCEPT icmp -- 0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0 icmp type 255
    ACCEPT esp -- 0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0
    ACCEPT ah -- 0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0
    ACCEPT udp -- 0.0.0.0/0 224.0.0.251 udp dpt:5353
    ACCEPT udp -- 0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0 udp dpt:631
    ACCEPT all -- 0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0 state RELATED,ESTABLISHED
    ACCEPT tcp -- 0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0 state NEW tcp dpt:22
    ACCEPT tcp -- 0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0 state NEW tcp dpt:80
    REJECT all -- 0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0 reject-with icmp-host-prohibite

    I believe this is all correct except for the last line , i dont like the REJECT thing.

    Okay...scratch EVERYTHING. I have figured the whole issue out. Turns out i have the wrong IP assigned to my domain name. There was some failure in communication when we obtained a static IP. No one changed it.
