Hi, i follow all the instructions correctly in http://stanton-finley.net/fedora_core_5 ... notes.html guide notes but still unable to get the webserver working. I try http://localhost and it works but i can't get the dns domain that i set up to work. My ip is a dynamic ip and I'm not sure if i set up the port forwarding correctly. I'm using a linksys router and set up port range forwarding for port 80, 8080, and 443. Can someone help to get this working, thanks greatly!

when you installed fedora, you had an option to enable the firewall and on that same screen it asked if you wanted the firewall to allow traffic through for any of these servers and you could select which servers you wanted to allow. did you allow traffic for the http server? because if not you're going to have to add a rule to iptables or whatever other firewall you may have installed (such as firestarter).

another thing..have you tried going to your ip address? such as http://23.56.96.78 (random numbers i chose)? you can find your ip by going to http://www.whatismyip.com and then just copy and paste the ip they show you after http:// in your address bar.


also...are you using https? because if not, you dont need to allow traffic through port 443. and you're probably not going to need it for port 8080 (looky)

yeah, apparently i add rules to iptable and i'm able to see my site with the ip number or domain. But I ask someone to see if they can access it and he can't see it, page not displayed. I double check the permissions in /var/www/html
