Question Can't access Linux Web server on LAN


Hi, I've got a FC13 linux and 3 windows pc's on my LAN. The linux has php/mysql (joomla) installed - acting as a web server.

I can ping the linux from any machine but can't access the web joomla installation on the linux with http://ip/joomla or with http://hostname/joomla. How can I fix this? Is it a security setting somewhere?

Thanks in advance.

Is the Web server listening on the machine's LAN IP?

sudo netstat -anp | grep ":80.*LISTEN"

If it's listening on * or :: or 0.0.0.0 or specifically on your LAN IP it should work.

You also need to define "can't access the web joomla installation." What's the error message when you try??

Thanks, I'm still struggling and tried a few things, even up to the point where I shut myself totally out and had to reinstall httpd.

On the listening question: yes, it appears so...
Quote:
tcp 0 0 10.0.0.5:80 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 4615/httpd
What I mean with "can't access".... If I open my web browser from another machine in the lan, say 10.0.0.4, I can't see the default index.html in my var/www/html directory or my configured joomla directory. Browser just says... cant display the page as if it can't find it. But I can ping the linux server (10.0.0.5).

No firewalls. I think its either httpd.conf or apache.ini but don't know where and what.

Please help!

Firewall

I had the same problem and i have solved it through allowing WWW(HTTP) and Secure WWW(HTTPS) Services from
System > Administration > Security Level and Firewall.

Good Luck
