Cannot Connect to my Server.

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have been using Apache for quite some time now, everything ran fine and worked in order until just recently. All of a sudden I cannot connect to my server! Type http://70.64.197.188/ into your brower and nothing will work. There used to be a comment block on it, but nothing shows up. If I type 'localhost' into my browser, it will show up intact. I haven't been messing around with anything, this just happened out of the blue. I've reinstalled everything, restarted everything, but nothing seems to work.

 

Does anyone have any ideas?

Personally, I got a "Gateway Timeout". Everything's supposed to work fine except some different issues:

1. Check your IP address!

2. If you're running on Windows and just installed Service Pack 2, you may need to unblock port 80 ( or whatever port Apache is running under)

3. Try to remember when you first set up Apache. rename your httpd.conf file to something else and use the httpd-default.conf to see if the problem is from the current one.

 

Good luck

Okay well, my IP address changed to 70.64.197.121 and now my site works. I have one question though: Why did it change? I have high-speed internet with Shaw Cable.

ips can change unless you buy a static ip from your isp.
