Thanks Till, I have already assigned the port 80 to the server and am able to see my webpage from outsite my network, which is a good sign that it's been done correctly :-).
Since I am a newbie to the Linux world and hosting locally for that matter, it's going to be a bit of learning curve for me. I initially installed EHCP, don't know if had it misconfigured or what, had some issues that I was not too happy, then I was unable to uninstall it, which caused me to reinstall the UBUNTU. Anyways, I am not blaming ehcp, most likely my own lack of experience and being new to the Linux world. That's why I need a control panel that can help me with my needs. I sure can use anyother help and input with this.
