Localhost connects but no external connection - test request

Postby JohnSmithers » 28. May 2012 20:14

Hi

My profile has the details of the system I am using.

I can connect through localhost to phpmyadmin and the databases etc. However I cannot connect at all externally to the server.

I have tried test.html and test.php The response is: Oops! Google Chrome could not connect to xx.xxx.xxx.xxx

I should perhaps also mention that I am running a 64bit version of windows 2008; I'm noticing that the task manager has *32 beside httpd.exe, if that is important (?)

I am using version 3 of the control panel. I have two logs for you. The first is the apache error log, the second is the mysql log.

1. Apache log

[Mon May 28 00:07:23 2012] [error] [client xx.xxx.xxx.xxx] File does not exist: C:/xampp/htdocs/7.html
[Mon May 28 00:11:16 2012] [error] [client ::1] script not found or unable to stat: C:/xampp/htdocs/admin.cgi
[Mon May 28 00:26:14 2012] [error] [client ::1] File does not exist: C:/xampp/htdocs/xxxxxdb
[Mon May 28 00:44:39 2012] [error] [client 37.220.102.234] client denied by server configuration: C:/xampp/htdocs/xampp


2. Mysql log

What should be my next steps?

Hi JohnSmithers,

Your profile is not clear. There is no Windows 2008. There is a Windows Server 2008 and a Windows Server 2008 R2. This difference is very important. Please update your profile.

I don't see any failed request of the files test.html or test.php in your apache error.log file.
I just can see failed requests for files 7.html, admin.cgi and xxxxxdb folder
Maybe your access.log would be more helpful.

best wishes,
Altrea

Hi Altrea

Updated the profile. Access log is showing nothing. The main screen has:

possible problem detected port 80 in use by httpd.exe

possible problem detected port 443 in use by httpd.exe"

possible problem detected port 3306 in use by mysqld.exe


Thanks for the assistance. Always appreciated.

Your access.log is empty but your error.log does have some entries of http errors from requests? That's weird.
Have you changed anything in your apache configuraion files?
are you using vhosts?

I have absolutely no idea how to start to solve your problem :roll:
