Ubuntu Server's Web Server only can access Webmin

I recently setup an Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS with LAMP and Webmin.

I can access Webmin via a web browser from other machines on the network. However I can't access anything else. I had Wordpress running, but it's no longer accessible.

I can SSH via Putty from a Windows machine, as well as remote desktop from my Linux laptop, but I have something incorrectly configured on the web server.

From the Linux laptop I can https:// the SSH port, and it will reply, but nothing else. I know I'm overlooking something.

Help! Thank you in advance.

Erfankam -- you were right!

I was able to check the status of my Apache server via the Webmin tool. I didn't realize that it wasn't started. I turns out I had a configuration error in the dav_svn.conf file, which I commented out and then was able to restart apache. After restarting apache, my Wordpress did come back up.

I was fooled by the fact that WebMin was responding on port 10000, so I thought my web server was back up and running.

Now onto php and MySql.

Thanks again.
