using apache to host my own website...

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! I am having some trouble using apache. I installed and it runs perfectly. It runs fine locally but i want it to be global.

I want to host my own site using apache. I have my own domain name but I don\'t know much about DNS and what IP address apache should be configured to use. what directives need to be changed in apache for my site to be viewed on the web. I am newbie so any help would be appreciated thanx.

go to www.apache.org and click on HTTP Server and click the appropriate version under the \'documenation\' heading.

 

check the following directives:

 

Listen

ServerName

 

you will need to open port 80 for the machine\'s internal ip on your modem/router to allow outside access.

My server is running fine. I configured apache to Listen to 80.

and with my router i used port forwarding to forward to my computer\'s IP address. Can my ServerName in httpd.conf be anything or??

 

Do I need to modify my domain name servers for my registered domain names? If i do need to, would my host name be the same as the ServerName in the httpd.conf file and the ip address for my computer?
