    Can connect but...


    I have just set up a webserver and it is accessible ( http://mysite.ath.cx/index.html ), but people can only view small files and PHP doesn't work well either ( http://mysite.ath.cx/info.php ). But on my LAN the connection speed and PHP work fine. The transfer rates are also horrible 0.1-.05 kbps. Is this a server problem?

    Speed is a direct result of your ISP's upload caps..assuming this is on a residential connection..

    Not too sure about the php problem.

    When I used torrent to download debian sarge my upload speed was around 85-100kb.

    I have done some teting using a proxy server and it seems that files over or aournd 2kb don't like to load. So it this really because of ISP upload caps, is there a restriction on port 80? Should I try another port maybe? Help would be appreciated. Oh, and I am on a residential line.

    I just ran the speakeasy speed test and got

    Last Result:
    Download Speed: 1183 kbps (147.9 KB/sec transfer rate)
    Upload Speed: 494 kbps (61.8 KB/sec transfer rate)

    So speed shouldn't be an issue

    It could be a proxy server issue or your ISP filtering port:80 traffic. Generally speaking, ISP's prohibit the running of Web sites on consumer level accounts. You might want to check with your ISP before tearing down the server. As for changing the default port, I wouldn't do this. If the site works fine on the local side then your configuration is correct. Since you are describing your problems coming from the remote side, then I would start looking at any potential proxy filters and/or the ISP.
