    website inaccessible outside


    Hi,

    I have a problem with my website. I have a dedicated server from a webhost. I can access the site using Lynx but cant view it on browser. The domain is pointing to that IP when pinged. I tried without virtual host and adding it to virtual but still the same.

    "Tail" has this:

    "GET / HTTP/1.0" 200 281

    Hope you can help.

    Thanks.

    If you run a running tail (tail -f /var/log/httpd/access_log) and you try hitting the page from your browser to you see the requests come in? Can you telnet to the domain on port 80? Are you sure that apache is listening on an interface other than localhost (netstat -ntlp).

    hi ,

    stop your firewall and iptables and try access the domain ..
    if u are able to do so add a rule in iptable to open port 80

    This is normally due to the Apache configuration, you don't say what distro the server is running so (for the two I know)

    Red Hat / CentOS
    Post the contents of /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

    Ubuntu / Debian
    Post the contents of /etc/apache2/apache.conf and /etc/apache2/sites-available/site-name-file
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    thank you all for your replies. it is related to firewall and ip tables.

    my host has no step-by-step info, this is quite hard for noobs.
