router port forwarding and DMZ
mmmm about the router I think you might be on to something as I have made two seperate installations on two sepeate servers and resulted in identical behaviour of sites not working
first of all about port forwarding
are you implying I should set up my main IP at the wall to be forwarded to 192.168.0.183 (i.e. the IP my virtual hosts are runnng on as well as my ISpconfig server Ip)
could you explain the other option you mentioned DMZ not sure I follow (not familiar with DMZ or the terminology used).
I dont have the server running at the momment as it is pointless as the sites dont work, I could set it up to run and let you know so you can have a look around.
before we do that I will take a look at my router setting.
Question 1 what url should I enter in the browser to view my newly added sites, please give an example based on the config info in my initial post.
Question 2 do I have to be running on a seperate machine to enter this url, (i.e. can I enter this url on the actual server for testing or do I have to be an actual client mechin running externally)
Question 3 do you have any troubleshing tips to test this setup from an apache point of view any utilities mayby part of the fedora core 5 distro I can use to trouble shoot this situation.
