webserver setup problems


i have redhat 9; i installed the web server package with apache and the appropriate packages. i have turned on the service. i have put an index.htm file in the var/www and var/www/html folders

but i still can not access the index page from inside my local network. i put in the local ip address of the webserver 192.168.200.40 in ie and the "Page cannot be displayed" error comes up

is there something i am missing?

Have you edited the Apache config file? When you enter in to your browser http://[ip here]/index.htm, does anything come up? Have you tried restarting Apache since you put the file there?

I don't use redhat so don't know the specifics of it. However the configuration file, httpd.conf , has to be there somewhere. If you haven't already, try looking through it. I don't think apache refuses remote connections by default but it can be configured to, and distros sometimes change defaults to what they think is best. Can't hurt to have a look.

Check your firewall rules:
iptables -L

And that apache is listening on all interfaces:
netstat -nlp

Make sure your /etc/hosts file is setup correctly. I went round-and-round with Apache in RH9 with almost the same problems you're having. My hostname had to resolve to localhost, but the hostname.domainname had to resolve to the external IP address or I got 404 from anywhere outside "localhost"... Whatever hostname.domainname you use should also be present in the apache config.

I also remember the situating changing with Apache verision. that is, with the old verision the whole host.domainname had to resolve to localhost, but that broke Apache completely after an upgrade.

Sorry I'm spotty with the details, but it was a while ago and I don't have the hosts file handy to see what I ultimately did... Hope this helps though.
