First off you're going to have to provide a lot more information. Do you have the ftp and web servers setup on your computer? If so do you have a domain name setup, if so, you should just type in the domain name from a different computer, if not then you have to type in the IP address from another computer. Maybe I'm not understanding your question, but try to be a little more -v (that's verbose)

You should always try to provide some kind of information in the subject of your thread, don't just type NEED HELP NOW!

Have a look at your httpd.conf file, but typically the first page that apache will look for is called index.htm, inted.html or similar. Look for the DirectoryIndex directive in the config file.

if you didn;'t have a suitably named file, this is probably your problem.

You are putting your content in /var/www/html aren't you (I think this is the default in FC5). Look for the DocumentRoot directive in httpd.conf

Can you post a link for perfect setup?

Also, try and get one thing working at a time. Is your web server running OK now?

Do you have a domain name registered? If so, an external browser should just need the domain name www.yourdomain.com in the address bar

Another question. Whay exactly do you want ISPconfig setup?

It sounds like a lot more than your average user want, and if you want webmail and so forth, there are much simpler ways of doing it - see Squirrelmail which comes with FC5 for example

No, but if you don't any external user will need to enter you public IP address to connect. In this case, they could put 123.234.345.456 into the address bar (if your public IP was 123.234.345.456). It still works, just harder to remember.

If you are trying to access from same network, then you should simply put server1.matt.com in

Think of it this way.

I own a domain name example.com (I don't really, this is a standard example name)

I set up a web server and people outside connect to www.example.com.

I also have a romm full of comuters, all on a network, say 192.168.1.1-192.168.1.100.

Each of these computers has it's own name - machine1, machine2, etc (not very interesting names).

Think of these machines being more accurately called machine1.example.com etc.


Not very useful in itself, but if I had a couple of domains and netwrks that were conected, saw someotherexample.com, I could connect between them by referring to machine23@someotherexample.com, etc.


Does that make sense?

In short, server1.matt.com is the hostname of the machine server1 in the matt.com domain

You need to replace the Apache index page with your own index.htm (or index.html).
