comment Web server not available on Debian virtual machine
Did that and it works now. The browser hung for ~2 minutes the first time, but now the site loads quickly and seems to work well. Can't imagine why this wasn't an issue earlier as I have never manually changed that directive...

Added results of port and firewall checks, but they don't mean much to me..

My goof. Unfortunately restarting as root doesn't give me any leads - apache seems to be running fine on the VM

Thanks for the catch. However, restarting as root doesn't help me reach port 80 from my windows machine. See my edits above.

Nice. Nothing like being kicked when you're down.

comment Oops - how to undo gzip of entire web directory?
Thanks John, I'm trying to get the backed up files restored now. But by way of better understanding how the stackoverflow sites work, why did I get a -1 for this? It seems a valid problem (though granted a stupid, self inflicted one).

voretaq7: actually, that dawned on me 13 minutes ago when I crashed the entire site. you are completely right though, of course.

Using SSH primarily.

comment Is it ok to add users to the 'apache' group?
I'm with you so far, please help me understand a little more: The files in question are primarily extensions to the Joomla CMS, so a PHP page is unpacking a .zip file and copying the contents throughout the web directory. So I guess it must be the Apache user that executes the PHP scripts, right? This ends up making it hard for a developer (Yours Truly) to edit these files. Should the PHP page run under a different user or should the developer have different permissions?

comment Is it ok to add users to the 'apache' group?
This seems spot on. My user was added to the Apache group, but is still not able to edit the files belonging to Apache. Which, I gather, is how things should be - I promise not to change that.
