Can't connect to my Apache
Help! I cannot connect to Apache... :(


ps aux
says it's running, and


netstat -tap
says the same... But in my browser, I get no pages... :confused:

Seems as if your firewall (iptables) is blocking port 80. Shut your firewall down and see if that makes a difference.

Or, it could be that your Apache is listening only on certain IP addresses (and not the one that you tried...)

How can I shut down my firewall? :confused:

Depends on your distro and on your firewall... In general it's a good idea to have a look at the init scripts in /etc/init.d. Maybe there's one with the string "firewall" in it? If so, run


/etc/init.d/<name_of_the_script> stop
and then


iptables -L
to see if it has really stopped. If this doesn't help or you can't find an init script for your firewall run


iptables -F
That flushes all you firewall rules.
