I've installed XAMPP and it's working fine, localhost is showing everything it needs to (I have a wiki located in /mediawiki/ and a mini site of static webpages at /site/). Running Windows 7.
Before I tried to access my server from outside my network, I could access my wiki from within my network just fine by going to the machine's ip address (192.168.1.69/mediawiki). But I want this wiki to be available from outside the network. I've spent ~10 hours now googling things and trying to get it to work.
My server hands out static ip addresses, so I don't need any DynDNS update software, but I have set up a DNS account for my (WAN) ip address (let's call it 75.x.x.x) from freedns.afraid.org (because of free). I've tried editing the httpd.conf file a bunch of times trying to get it to work, setting ServerName 192.168.1.69, 75.x.x.x, the DNS domain I set, 0, *--nothing's worked, I can't connect ot the server from outside the network. To top it off, now I can't connect to the server from withing the network, even though I've restored the backup of the original httpd.conf (that I made just in case).
httpd.conf is set to listen on port 80, and all the forwarding is taken care of, both on the router and through Windows Firewall (both incoming and outgoing just in case). I tried it with another open port but still nothing. At this point, I don't know what I'm missing because I feel like I've tried everything I've been able to google up.
