My web page does not show up on internet:
I did instal Fedora core1 Server option.
I know how to use ( tho still learing commands ) Shell Konsole comand line.
I know how to start stop restart httpd Apache server.
I know where to put my index.html and rest of files.
I have cable internet conection.
I have established Network in my house:
- Netgear router with one IN port what is connected to my cable modem.
- four OUT ports for four of my computers. On one of them is Apache server with fedora linux OS. Rest of them runs various windows platforms.
- Only for testing purposes I put fedora on my oldest and slowest comp
233MHz with ~90Mb of RAM memory. With intention to put fedora and server on my faster puter after I get everything works good .
Fedora works well, a bit slower but still works nicely on that old one.
I have few computers with various operating systems and hardware.
I know I can't test from the inside of my network if my page works.
I know I have to be able ( from the outside of my house/network ) to test
web page sitin on my server using IP address - the one my ISP assigned to me. I was checking my IP to figureout if it is static or dynamic and it did not change for the last 7 days so I guess I got lucky and got static one.
I still do not have domain name, did not buy one waiting to see if my page works well using just IP to check it out.
I don't know how to check out if my ISP blocking port 80.
I asked several friends of mine to check my page using IP and did not work.
I do not know what is a problem or what additional steps to use, I am still
kinda new in Linux... tho amaized with capabilities.
I was reading all over the internet how to set up all this including www.linuxhomenetworking.com but there are endles strings of informations that simply just make me to feel like I don't know what to read just to perform basic, esential steps to make this page works.
Any help - directions what to do will do good, please help.
Ok I got it. After several days of readings diferent sources and setuping my page works. Tho I got to do some tweaking at my Netgear Router setup page, and manualy change and add some lines in'httpd.conf' file.
There is only one thing that bugs me.
I am able to open page inputing outside my real IP address I got from my ISP, only from one computer and that is Laptop with xp + sp2 on it.
If I input Local IP ( 192.168.0.6 ) my router assigned to my system with Linux + Apache server on it I am geting nothing with message 'server could not be found'.
From the other side I am able to open the page from all other three computers using Local IP but no sukcess if I use main Outside IP!
Very strange and I have no Idea why is that hapening!
Anyhow the page is up and runing nicely. Next milestone is to install and start to use Mysql.
