setting up web server - NOOB Q
That's my first time ever trying to host a website on my PC. While I can see the html file when I type http://127.0.0.1/ or when I type my IP http://xx.x.x.xxx/, other people tell me they cannot access the site.
I seem to have installed Apache correctly - it was confirmed by a console message I got. I also have Webmin installed as I read somewhere it is useful.
I just don't know where to start. How, for example am I to check whether the site is 'visible' on the net? It is not, and I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. I've looked at httpd.conf file, but being a noob I don't know what to edit there.
I'd appreciate some step by step tips. Not everyone started off as a guru. THANKS!
