Apache2 not working on Debian
New waters for me.

I have Debian setup, and installed apache2 using
apt-get install apache2

However, when I try to view the default page in a web browser from another machine on my network, it doesn't get anything back from the server (unresponsive).

I haven't touched any of the conf files. Not sure why it's not working.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

It's unlikely to be apache problem. Most likely - networking issue. Make sure apache is running - 'ps ax | grep apache'. If it does -see if you can see it from the server itself - 'lynx localhost' (install lynx if it's not installed already)

You're right!
it shows "It works!"

So...what could be causing my other machines not to see it? I can ping fine. How would I test whether or not port 80 is sending/receiving data properly?

OK now
For some reason it's working now. Maybe a loose cable or something.

Thanks klearview.

Do you have firewall set up on Debian server? Check your firewall rules with 'iptables -L' (as root)

No firewall
No, I don't see anything setup when I look at the iptables. And it seems to be working fine now. I think it was a cable issue.
Thanks again.
