Can't See my website on redhat linux

Hello there
I am use to this. Installed Linux redhat 9 on a dell server quite a while back. Had a power fail and I could not get it to woerk since.
Some say that its the ports that closed. I checked with NMAP or something and port 80 and 8080 is open. Tried IPTABLES STOP.
I see that HTTPD started but I cannot call it up from a remote location on the web a check with dns report and that's where it lost me. Please help....

This is very general - possible causes can cover many, many topics including DNS, Apache, Linux, firewalls and who knows what else. Let's try and narrow it down.

How do you access your server - local machine, ssh on LAN, remote ssh?

What's your server's ip address (it seems to be but please confirm)? (using that ip your server seems to be totally unreachable from outside)

First of all, don't start the same issue/discussion in a new thread without following up with your original thread:

Keep it in the same thread please.

Secondly, this site resolves to for me. A quick scan says this host is not up, that would be your first problem. Make sure your external IP and DNS are correct where this domain is served from.

Another full scan says it's up but nothing is open, that would cause httpd to not respond to requests.
