I'm trying to make an owncloud server using apache in win7. Im new to servers and networking but Ive done a blind stab at it.
Heres what I've done:
- dowloaded xampp and put owncloud on the apache server.
-port forwarded port 80, but the router told me it was in use(netstat told me otherwise) and that webserver port was moved to port 8080. So I forwarded port 8080.
- I made "holes" in the firewall for port 8080
- I made changes in the httpd.conf:
1# Listen: Allows you to bind Apache to specific IP addresses and/or
2# ports, instead of the default. See also the <VirtualHost>
5# Change this to Listen on specific IP addresses as shown below to
6# prevent Apache from glomming onto all bound IP addresses.
11# ServerName gives the name and port that the server uses to identify itself.
12# This can often be determined automatically, but we recommend you specify
13# it explicitly to prevent problems during startup.
15# If your host doesn't have a registered DNS name, enter its IP address here.
17 ServerName (my external IP):8080
(server answers to 127.0.0.2:8080 and my PF settings)
The problem is that if i input my external IP in my browser the router answers, I seem to recall that that didn't happen before i did the port foward. (for the record I've tried many different combinations of port and IPs in PF but nothing seems to work, I've tried to PF to my NICs address 10.0.0.2 and 10.0.0.4 but no use)
If i input (external IP):8080 I get no response.
I ran PortChecker It says port 8080 is unreachable. But I've tried so many possibilities for PF don't know what to do any more.
I figured I'd be able to input (my external IP):8080 in the browser and my server would answer, am I horribly mistaken?
As you can tell I'm pretty clueless, I'm learning as i go, but now I'm stuck. Can someone please point me in the right direction?
