Apache wont work
I`m working on building a IDS with Fedora using the tutorial at Here I tested apache before I started as in the Doc it it works perfectly however I have come to the end and installed BASE and Apache seems to have stopped working. I cant get it to serve up pages from ANY PC's or even itself the only way it does serve them up is by typing in the loopback address i.e. 127.0.0.1.
I have checked the firewall and HTTP is allowed I even turned the firewall off completely still didnt work, I stopped the iptables service and it wont work. I made sure that the network cards are trusted.
I`m pretty new to linux but i`m baffled and cant figure out whats up
can anyone help?

is the httpd service started?
/sbin/service httpd status
also, did you utilize the servername vairable in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf?
You have to tell it an ip and port to listen on.

1st this is neither a *NIX or security question. It's an apache configuration question.
In your httpd.conf are you sure you are binding httpd to an ip/interface other than
localhost (127.0.0.1) at port 80.
Often I have seen configs use an * to bind to all.

The server name and IP and port are specified in the httpd.conf, just find it strange how it did work and now all of a sudden it doesnt
