I think I was typing that as you were posting your reply.
Thank you SO MUCH for all of your help thus far!
You're very welcome, glad I could help!
Glad things are working now!
Not familiar with simplephpblog script, any documentation?
Some php based applications can be very finicky with permissions on specific directories and files.
They will (sometimes) send up a page giving you a place start looking when there's a problem.
Is that what you're using to create the site at the link above?
I'm seeing by your /etc/apache2/sites-available/default that your document root is /srv/www.
Is there an index.html there?
Do you have a (my_website).conf file in /etc/apache2/sites-available?
Also, is there a symbolic link to (my_website).conf in /etc/apache2/sites-enabled?
: for typo
It's a combination of the crunchbang-logo-minimal from Waldorf, Open Logos font for the Debian logo and the grid background I did in Photoshop and GIMP. I put it all together with GIMP it's 2560x1440 the .xcf is 18.86 MB you can get it HERE feel free to use it if you can.
[edit to add] just realized this post made me a #! Member above my sig pic WooHoo!
Since localhost:8080 and your internal IP:8080 are working then LAMP is working.
The problem is access from the web, external to internal ports are set to the same port on my router.
I have 3 sites running on my server acc-wtn.org, ccs-wtn.com and gwrra-tn-n.org same external IP address.
Ping all 3 and you'll see, DNS and Apache take care of what site gets displayed.
Your problem seems to be with your router if you can flash dd-wrt it takes care of NAT much more efficiently.
Be careful with a dd-wrt flash though, read the forums and wiki for your router or you can BRICK it.
Hope this helps and don't get discouraged once you figure out what the problem is you'll be able to do it with your eyes closed.
http://homelampservertesting.solitary.org/ is timing out for me.
How is it that you guys at crunchbang.org somehow manage to be in such a different universe (one where users are actually civil and pleasant to one another) to the Debian forums?
When you treat others with respect, you usually get the same in return.
I'm getting "Iceweasel can't establish a connection to the server at waldorfworks.wirehound.com:4080" at that link.
[edit to add]:
I just read your post at http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php? … 3&p=467220 see if your router is capable of a dd-wrt flash. If it is you'll have much more control over port forwarding. Glad to hear you're getting positive results.
Try External Port 8080 to Internal Port 8080 on your router, also try accessing your website from http://downforme.org.
If you can access your site from the link then your router is not allowing loopback from your lan to your wan IP.
[Edit to add]
You won't view your website from the link but it will tell you if it's accessible from the internet.
If your ISP doesn't block port 80 I would set your router externet port to that.
Hope that helps.
Edit: sorry just reread your OP ports.conf should do the trick,
also check /etc/apache2/apache2.conf for these lines
# Include the virtual host configurations: Include sites-enabled/ NameVirtualHost 192.168.1.xxx:80 NameVirtualHost 192.168.1.xxx:443
and change if needed.
The live install works flawlessly. With Thunar, I am able to access network shares as well as the other partitions on my hard drive, even without any root authorization.
After installing to my hard drive though, I am unable to access the other partitions on my hard drive.
Trying to mount them in Thunar tells me that I need to have authorization to mount them but fails to give me the opportunity to do so.
Seems that the only partitions being written to fstab are the ones selected to be used during install.
You can add the others manually and all is good.
