Question Apache website access


Hello all. I have two problems here and any feedback from you is highly appreciated. I have web server apache on linux Centos. I can access it successfully by typing on the address bar http://localhost, 127.0.0.1 or 192.168.0.150 from the local computer server and the site loads normally with graphic. When I access the site from another computer in the same local network, I don't get the correct website. I see the site like html as text not graphic. Please see below text file output from the browser: Also I can only access the site by typing 192.168.0.150 IP address in the address bar. When I type http://localhost or 127.0.0.1, the site does not come up. Do you see what I did wrong? How can I fix this problem. Thank you again. . Thank you all.

fist you can not use Localhost or 127.0.0.1 because it's the loopback adress,you can use it only from the server itself.

http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/L/loopback_address.html

and if the web pages don't came up correctly on another machine and came up correctly on the server when you type localhost
I assume that there is somethings wrong in your browser,try from another machine or another browser.

Best regards.

Another take

How you crafted the html links to images, documents, attachments, and external CSS also makes a difference.
If they are relative links, they should work everywhere. If they are specific and you used localhost or 127.0.0.1 in the link, they will fail to load properly from any remote client.

What is the listen port in your httpd.conf file? (It usually defaults to port 80.)

Is the listen port open in the firewall?

Where and how can I see if httpd.conf uses port 80? I have to also mention that in order for me to you the web script, I had to vi the httpd.com and add this information to the httpd.conf:

# ServerName localhost
<VirtualHost *>
DocumentRoot /var/www/mysite.com
ServerName development.mysite.com
</VirtualHost>

and everytime I restart the httpd I get this message:

[root@localhost ~]# service httpd restart
Stopping httpd: [ OK ]
Starting httpd: Warning: DocumentRoot [/var/www/html/mysite.com] does not exist
[ OK ]

Thank you

the path of the config file is /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
Code:
......................
# Listen: Allows you to bind Apache to specific IP addresses and/or
# ports, in addition to the default. See also the <VirtualHost>
# directive.
#
# Change this to Listen on specific IP addresses as shown below to 
# prevent Apache from glomming onto all bound IP addresses (0.0.0.0)
#
#Listen 12.34.56.78:80
Listen 80

#
# Dynamic Shared Object (DSO) Support
#
# To be able to use the functionality of a module which was built as a DSO you
# have to place corresponding `LoadModule' lines at this location so the
# directives contained in it are actually available _before_ they are used.
# Statically compiled modules (those listed by `httpd -l') do not need
# to be loaded h

and for the DocumentRoot [/var/www/html/mysite.com] does not exist error,i think the systax in your
config files is causing it

try this:
Code:
httpd -t

There's a good basic intro to Apache at about dot com.
