I have installed XAMP 1.7.2. Port 80 is open (confirmed). IP address is registered. Apache is running, however I cannot access my website using my local IP address, my Web IP address or my site name. I can access it using http://localhost, however. Using a third part tool I got the following message:
"An attempted connection to 18.104.22.168:80 was refused. This typically indicates that there are no services available on that port, but that it is NOT being blocked by a firewall or your ISP."
However there is a service on that port. httpd.conf is configured to listen on port 80. My index files are in the right location. The site worked for several months then suddenly stopped working. Is this problem familiar to anyone.
