remote computers cannot spider my web page directories


hey, I've just set up a l.a.m.p. webserver on my gentoo box to be used (only within the local network), and i can access everything in the /var/www/localhost/htdocs/ and have it parsed,etc from a remote computer by pointing my browser at the ip of my gentoo machine. However, when i want to access something in a subdirectory (my phpmyadmin folder, for example) i get an error that the host isn't found. (though i can access them from a web browser locally with no problem). to me, it seems like the browser has already found the host, so going to a subdirectory shouldn't be a problem, but i cannot figure out what the problem is. permissions are fine. thanks.

Is this an apache error message or one coming from your browser? Can you copy and paste the error message.

it's coming from my browser. It comes in the form of "acoustic.kaur could not be found. please check the name and try again." I am not using the hostname (which is acoustic.kaur), i am pointing to it using the ip address from another computer within the network. I am trying to access the pages through both my mac and some windows machines.

If it is when you use phpMyAdmin then make sure that $cfg['PmaAbsoluteUri'] in config.inc.php is set and it using your IP address.

no, it's not when using phpmyadmin... I cannot even get to it. I type in http://(my ip address) and apache fetches me the index.html.en page just fine, and i can view all other pages in that directory. However, if I type in http://(my ip address)/phpmyadmin or http://(my ip)/cmdb or http://(my ip)/any_other_subdir i get the same error in my browser and no page is fetched at all, just a pop-up in firefox or a warning page in i.e. and safari.
