comment Opening apache server to the web
Apologies about that. Its mentioned in the top level question as slicehost. I already opened the necessary ports on the machine which seems to allow it access via web browser but not my hard code. perhaps this would be better suited to stackoverflow as i have another problem now where the connection is being refused in java but not web browsers

@SmallClanger: GOT IT! it wasnt the cloud provider. It was the OS. Centos has a block on port 80 in iptable. just ran the command to open it and boom. Thanks a bunch for pointing out security as a possibility. I feel stupid for not thinking about it. Last thing, Do i need apache installed as a prequisite to run tomcat6 or is tomcat 6 a server side quite in its own?

@Cogicero I dont think its permissions. I have no problem writing or reading files from that directory as a regular user. I recently emptied it just in case I did something wrong with index.html. This way the usual "It works" message would be displayed. @SmallClanger This is something i hadn't thought of actually. The ip address is responding to ping and I have Listen for port 80 and 8080 (443 was being used another process) I take it Listen isnt enough to forward the traffic then?
