Hellp getting Apache working


Can anybody please help me get Apache to work;

It is installed but not configured correctly.

I get the Apache greeting page on: http://localhost/

/etc/hosts: 192.168.1.27 xandroshdb xandroshdb
127.0.0.1 localhost
192.168.1.3 webserver

I have told apache to listen to my IP address 62.242.18.127:80 Don't know if it's necessary

Thank you.

Apache should only be listening on it's own IP address in your setup. I'm guessing the IP address 62.242.18.127 is ond that your ISP is providing for your cable/adsl modem? If so, you need to turn on port forwarding on your router, and simply forward all requests for port 80 (the port Apache is running on) to the internal IP address of your webserver (192.168.1.3 in your case).

What kind of modem / router do you have? You should have some kind of control over it, usually via a webpage that lets you adjust port settings. Quite simply, you'd choose to open port 80, then type the IP address of your webserver to forward it. All depends on what hardware you're dealing with.

The router has a brand name: Efficient.
