I have been trying to get Apache to display my website through www.brido.co.uk, but not with much joy I am afraid.
On the local host it works fine. Trying and connect from outside of my network and it doesn't work. I am running XP, so I made sure the firewall is turned off (unticking the box in the advanced tab of the network properties). My router has no firewall running on it either. I ping my domain and it points to my router fine. I had an ftp server going (not apache) before so I know it forwards it on okay. Set my router to forward ports 8000 to my machine running apache.
In the httpd.conf file I have set the listen to 8000 and the servername to www.brido.co.uk:8000
When i try 127.0.0.1:8000 it is fine
Try www.brido.co.uk:8000 and I get page cannot be displayed. I have also had friends try, they have no luck (try yourselves, nowt!!)
Any ideas?? I am out and I don't have any experience in apache. I have also tried all the above with port 8080. Nuffin'!!
Any help would be appreciated.
