Apache working, but not locally??? strange!
Posted 21 February 2003 - 12:29 PM
When I type 127.0.0.1, or localhost or the name of the computer into a URL field the Apache Server successfully returns the request.
However when I type in my static IP address 81.5.XXX.X it fails to respond succesfully? This happens for all computers within the network (only 4)
Strange enough though, when I try away from the local Lan (externally) and type the IP address, the request is succesful and the defult page is displayed.
For testing purposes it would be much more efficient for me to see the changes immediatley instead of having to go to another computer in order to access the page. does anyone have any suggestions as i cannot think what could be causing this?

On the machine that has apache, php installed on it, you say it works when you type in http://localhost/ right?
At home I test my files like this i.e. http://localhost/tester.php
(these files inside the htdocs folder)
But you\'v got these on ur own server, which to me is summink new and hope someone can help you on this matter, soz george

:arrow: Hardware Router Firewall (One Device - Netgear DG814)
:arrow: The DNS Settings
:arrow: Or Incorrect / error of installation upon Apache.
If anyone else reads this post with any suggestions, please let me know as it is piculiar!
PS: Jass, no I dont have to type http://localhost/tester.php as I have routed the httpd.conf file to another location on the local pc, but I dont think this would affect the error in anyway!
