Port 80 Apache in Xampp

Postby buzzyboy » 08. November 2009 06:16

I don't know why, but I can not seem to get port 80 to like me.
I'm able to view my website on localhost.

But when I try to connect to my computer with my external IP it doesn't work.

I've gotten it to work on port 8080, but we all know that's really awkward always having to type :8080 after the URL.

Port 80 is free, but doesn't seem to be working.

Is your firewall blocking port 80?

God, I'm sorry. :/
Right after I posted it I just called my ISP and it turns out they were blocking it, I had them unblock it and now it seems to be working perfectly.

Sorry about that. I feel retarded.

Yes, some ISPs block port 80, even other alternative server ports and some even block email ports so you must use their mail exchangers, just to make life as hard as possible.

That would have been my next response if your own firewall was clean.

Good luck.
