I've got a fresh Fedora 15 installation on my server that's been giving me trouble.
My first problem was that httpd wouldn't start. I kept getting an error that there was a segfault and the sysadmin eventually traced it back to a problem with mod_perl, so he removed it and httpd started fine.
I've had another very vexing problem recently, though: I get no response from Apache.
- I can SSH into my server
- I've got the right IP address
- It pings
- The httpd service is up and running
- I've got an index.html file in the webroot
- If I wget XX.XXX.XXX.XXX (the server's IP address) when SSH'd into the server itself, I get a response
But whenever I make a request to the server from any computer, regardless of ISP, I get no response - Chrome says it can't even connect. I'm absolutely stumped about how to fix it, and I've bugged the sysadmin quite a bit already. My robotics team gets this server space free from a company and I like to bug the sysadmin as little as possible about this kind of thing, but I suppose I'll have to if this question doesn't turn up any solutions.
Thanks for any help.
