Subject Re: Help needed - cannot access Apache from outside my box
Date Wed, 14 Aug 2002 15:36:23 GMT

What is your ServerName listed as in your httpd.conf file? I had a similar
problem once, and because the server name could not be verified with a
reverse-DNS lookup, my Apache would start but could not be accessed from
outside the server.

Not sure if that's what you're experiencing, but it sure kept me busy for a
day or so.
