Angry Going INSANE with Apache and Configuring my Linux Box


I am a total noob to Linux. I downloaded Red Hat 9.0 (Shrike) i386 from a european server near me. I have been tinkering with it for about a month now. What I am trying to do is start my computer business online. I bought a domain through easydns.com. At first I was having troubles keeping my IP updated as I am on a PPPoE account and have a constantly changing IP address. I downloaded, installed and configured ez-ipupdate, linksysmon (for my linksys router) and have installed net-snmp, but cannot figure out how to configure it. My IP Updates on easydns, so I know that is working. Anyways that is off of the subject. I have my router setup to port forward my ports 80 and below to my ip of 192.168.1.104. I also have that setup as a DMZ host. From a windows box i do an ipconfig and get no packets lost. I can use putty from anywhere in the world to connect to my box, yet when I type in my website, I get nothing. Any help with this will be much appreciated.

have you check if your ISP blocks port 80?

change the listening port on apache ..(httpd.conf)

to 8080 or 81

and then test it , to see if works on a different port. if it does , obviously they block port 80....

hope it helps

Ok so I tried that then realized that httpd is not starting. For a while there, I was getting an error when I tried to start it, but now I get no error just [FAILED] when I use service httpd start
