    Setting up server - in need of H.E.L.P.


    Hi all!

    I'm trying to set up a webserver on a computer...I'm running CentOs 5 (I don't remember which version, it's either 5.4 or 5.5) I've installed Apache, ddclient, MySQL, setup my virtual hosts, configured port forwarding on my router (Linksys WRT54G2), and attempted to configure it on my DSL modem (ActionTec GT724WG), but when I go to my domain name, all I get is my Gateway. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I'm spinning my wheels and am rather stuck....

    Thanks!

    The port forwarding only works for people accessing the web server via the router's internet ip address (external users).
    For routing on your internal network, you need to set it up in the local dns server or via your hosts file.
