Smile Some questions about openSUSE/Webserver

Hey folks,

I've installed openSUSE and want to use it as a webserver. I've followed the great HOWTO for SUSE LAMP which helped me greatly! Apache, mysql and php all work now. If i place files in the htdocs folder i can access them fine with http://192.168.1.103/filename.extension

But i have some questions (if there silly, im sory but im new to openSUSE/Apache.

1. How can i access the files from other computers in my home network?
if i type http://192.168.1.103/info.php on my desktop i dont see nothing, what am i doing wrong?
2. If i want to host a website on this webserver (something limited like the profile i had to make for school) what else do i need to do?
3. during installation of all the programs and opensuse some packages failed to install, most often the hplib package. why is that? is it bad? and can i fix it? :P

Thanks for your help,

Bioforce
New happy opensuse user

Did you create or upload the info.php file to the document root of the web site?

If your server is behind a router, you must configure your router to forward port 80 to your server. If you want to use a domain, the domain's DNS record must point to your router's public IP address.

Is that the same folder where you put the other (working) files?
Any errors in Apache's error log?
