I used this guide to set up Apache2 and PHP5: link.
I set up a simple PHP script, debugged some permissions issues, got everything working. A few hours later, it stopped working. I could no longer access my script over the web.
When I open a browser on my PC and point to the server's IP address (I am not using a domain, this server is just for serving one PHP script), the connection times out. I followed several steps from this guide: link.
Here's what I've tried so far:
- Confirmed that apache is running
- Confifmed that port 80 is open
- Confirmed that html/php pages are at the proper directory
Other than installing Ubuntu, Apache, and PHP, all I have done is change a few permissions. So, since I'm new to Ubuntu, I assume that's where the problem must be. Here's how the permissions are set in my html directory:
$ pwd /var/www/html $ cd /var/www $ ls -l total 4 drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 May 3 12:07 html $ cd html $ ls -l total 20 -rw-r-Sr-- 1 www-data root 379 May 3 12:30 dataentry.php -rw-r--r-- 1 www-data www-data 1383 May 3 13:03 datalog.csv -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 11510 May 3 10:40 index.html $
Note I'm not using index.html - I just go directly to my script - so I'm assuming it doesn't matter what permissions are set for index.html.
I also checked my apache error log, and these are the last few entries from AFTER the last time I could connect:

Does anything here stand out? What are some other trouble-shooting steps I can take?
