Very basic question inbound.
I'm a CS student and i'm new to server side stuff. I managed to get myself a server in the cloud with a root ssh login and installed LAMP (centOS 5.5) and tomcat5 for running servlets.
So I went through the tutorials and what i knew from head setting up using terminal. Then when I finished the installation, I tried to access it the usual way through my browser from here but its just timing out. yet ping shows a response.
(So 2 machines, one here that im using to view the output and the other in the cloud where the actual machine is located).
Just to clarify, I have started the server.it seems the httpd processes are running fine although their are a bunch of them.
ps -aux |grep httpd
In the config file lets just say my ip is 188.8.131.52 and my dns is myserver.cloud.com
This is what the conf file has:
ServerName myserver.cloud.com canonical name is off. Listen is port 80.
Any ideas on how to open it up to the web so i can view it form here? Response should look like this: http://articles.slicehost.com/2008/2/6/centos-installing-apache-and-php5 (the apache 2 test page)
Thanks in advance to anyone who can point me in the right direction.
