Subject Re: [users@httpd] Trouble accessing website from anything but my local machine
Date Fri, 13 Jun 2003 02:26:55 GMT
Thank you for the reply! There does not appear to be any port conflicts. I can reach my site
by appending ":8000" to the end of the domain name (when I set the webserver to listen on
port 8000), and the IP that the ping request tries to reach coincides with the domain name
that I am using. 
I'm not aware of any settings to "serve pages to the public or only to the network or both."
I wonder if this is where I'm missing something.
Thanks again,

Could there be a port conflict or IP address change? Is Apache set to
serve pages to the public or only to the network or both? Good luck :)
