Settings under server tab!

Server Name: Candlevolt Server 1. Is this a correct choice?
Hostname: www is this a correct choice?
Domain: candlevolt.com is this a correct choice, or doesn't not matter what goes here?
www.candlevolt.com (http://www.candlevolt.com/) is our registered domain with our hosting company at present. I redirected the site to 192.168.1.103? When the url is typed www.candlevolt.com (http://www.candlevolt.com/) we get the default apache2 place holder and the IP address shows up in the url when loaded. :(
IP Address: 192.168.1.103 arrived at from the perfect setup directions. Is this correct?
Netmask: 255.255.255.0 I believe this is correct so said ipconfig.
Admin Email: admin@candlevolt.com is this correct?
IP List: Nothing here. Is this where if I want multiple sites I add 192.168.1.104 or is this a special purpose better left to the more educated than I?

That address needs to be the address of your server. The 192.X address will not work on the internet, only internal.

Your right if the server is not in a local network. If the server is behind a NAT router the private IP might be ok.

Correct.
We use a linksys cable firewall router. When setting up following the tutorial we used ipconfig from our windows and linux box to find the ip address when setting up this IP was not pingable from a dos prompt after entering the 192.168.1.103 to the I believe it was the ip file. The setup pinged the address and continued on.

Is the purpose for to have a place to put our main company files "website" on?
If so how can the world see it. My wife can not get to it from outside our office.
Ftping with firezilla will only allow user access not root access

I think you need to understand the difference between public and private IP addresses before you go any further.

You've set the DNS record for www.candlevolt.com to a private IP address, that's why nobody from the outside world can see it...
