apache not viewable by the outside


hi, i'm trying to set up an apache web server, everything seems to be working fine from
http://localhost
or
http://216.2.5.3 <-- my ip adress

from my computer they work fine, but if anyone else tries, they get an error saying that the website can not be found.. i have no idea where to start to look, can anyone point me in the right direction. i originally thought it might be user privlidges, but don't know where to look. i've done a few hours of searching on the net but seem to find all the tutorials either too simple or too complicated..

thanks
mark

Did you make sure your firewall(s) is open? I made the same mistake once before and booted myself in the rear for not after a few hours of poking around on my box.

do a service iptables stop

if it works, it is a firewall problem

if not

post the output of

netstat -tlnp

hey iptables stop didn't work
it wasn't a correct command and i couldn't find anything similar (i don't think i have an active firewall up, unless RH9 has one by default)

heres the other thing you asked to be posted!

Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State PID/Program name
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:32768 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 4170/rpc.statd
tcp 0 0 127.0.0.1:32769 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 4288/xinetd

tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:6000 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 4523/X
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:63251 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 4738/wish
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:62643 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 4738/wish
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:22 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 4274/sshd
tcp 0 0 127.0.0.1:631 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 5666/cupsd
tcp 0 0 127.0.0.1:25 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 4309/sendmail: acce

so we can see apache is running on port 80..
what else should i do?

the command is

service iptables stop

or

/etc/init.d/iptables stop

The default install sets up a firewall, maybe you've passed to fast on that part.

What you can also do is portscan the machine, you'll see what ports are open.

My most frequent Apache problem....

My default directory for Apache is /var/www/localhost/htdocs. If I'm having an Apache problem it's usually because everything in htdocs needs to be owned by "apache" and needs to belong to group "apache".
I do this:
cd /var/www/localhost
chown -R apache htdocs
chgrp -R apache htdocs

That usually fixes it. HTH.
