running appache webserver problems

Hello, not really sure where this question would fall, but since I am relatively a newbie to Linux I will use this forum.

Here is the situation, I am trying to run a web server using Appache with FC2....I have the following

1. A domain name
2. A box running FC2
3. A router ( I have three computers)

The problem I think lies in my configuration with the router quite possible. When I put in my domain name ( or my IP address) I simply get the router configuration site...basically to configure my router.

So my question is how should I set up the httpd.conf file...
How do I get my domain name to go past my router and to the Linux box web server which is at the internal IP address of

Also how would I know if my ISP is blocking port 80?

Let me know if you need any more information, I am sure I left something important out.

If apache runs and you can surf to it from your side of the router (the side with the 3 PCs) and you can surf to the outside world, through your router, I would start up ethereal or some other sniffer to see what comes to your NIC. If you cannot surf to your site from the WWW, try traceroute to your site, or nmap. Check the router configuration. Perhaps you have a firewalling option. Do an nmap or surf from one of the other machines to verify 80 is open.

NB Many ISPs discourage having a website unless the DNS is with them and your contract permits it ...
