Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

It's my first time installing Linux/Apache. I loaded CentOS and LAMPP on a machine attached to a LAN.

Turned off http and mysql (because I didn't want conflict with LLAMPP)

chkconfig httpd off
chkconfig mysqld off

then successfully LAMPP started with

/opt/lampp/lampp start
Starting XAMPP for Linux 1.7.3a...
XAMPP: Starting Apache with SSL (and PHP5)...
XAMPP: Starting MySQL...
XAMPP: Starting ProFTPD...
XAMPP for Linux started.

Problem: Unable to connect - Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at 179.16.51.36.

I need some pointers as to where to look next.

No errors in error_log file (just some warnings)

I can ping server.

httpd.conf looks like this:

ServerRoot "/opt/lampp"
Listen 80

Once I start LAMPP, I am able to telnet into localhost, port 80

telnet localhost 80

From the machine, run telnet localhost 80. Does that work? If so it indicates your webserver is running on port 80 like it should be. From your description though it sounds like that isn't working.

Check /var/log/messages to see if anything useful is being printed there.

This XAMPP page has some further troubleshooting tips. I suspect you will find some syslog messages in /var/log/messages that should point you in the right direction, though.

Make sure that your iptables is allowing incoming connections on port 80.

Run iptables -L -nv and make sure you have a line like this:

 2383  138K ACCEPT     tcp  --  *      *       0.0.0.0/0            0.0.0.0/0           tcp dpt:80

in your INPUT table.

I see that you are trying to connect by 179.16.51.36 ip in browser and you are checking the server via localhost. Can you tell if loading localhost in browser works. If the client and server are different hosts. Then you should be checking if the telnet from client to server ip on port 80 is working ?

You should verify Apache started correctly before you attempt to access it over the network.

netstat -ntlp

Run the above on the server and it should list which services are running and which ports they are "bound" to.

If 80 is not listed then you need to troubleshoot the apache startup.

apachectl configtest
apachectl start

Temporarily turning off the servers iptables firewall during initial testing will help.

/etc/init.d/iptables stop

3764/httpd seems to be on port 0 (see ablve) –  bob Jan 18 '11 at 15:21
    
+1 to turning iptables off! –  jrod Jan 18 '11 at 15:21
    
apachectl configtest gives me: httpd: Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using 127.0.0.1 for ServerName –  bob Jan 18 '11 at 15:21
    
It's rather unprofessional to be recommending iptables be turned off even when behind a firewall. –  Magellan Jan 16 '12 at 18:30
