Working fine locally, but no access from internet

Postby mbrami76 » 04. January 2013 03:09

Hello!
I've got a problem: I installed XAMPP 1.8 on a Ubuntu 12.04 Virtual machine in order to publish a WordPress website. Everything worked fine and my website is almost finished. A few days ago a made a request for my domain (http://www.projectweb.it) to point the public IP address given to the virtual machine. The request was processed correctly but I still get an "error 101" trying to access my website from the internet. Inside my local network everything works fine. I did'n touch default configs, except that i ran lampp security and set all the passwords.

Do you have any clue?

Please consider:
- Log files simply doesn't sense any http request from outside local network
- I don't have a physical firewall: port 80 on that public IP (94.92.177.182) is enabled (you won't ping it with common tools, as pings should being filtered).
- I can't even run xampp admin panel from outside (inside local network works great!)
- I have an almost identical installation on another virtual machine on another public IP address, but it runs Joomla.
- I am not, as you may expect, an expert on linux systems

If you need me to show any part of config files... please tell me what to check!

Thanks and have a nice day!

are you referring to:
A - /opt/lampp/share/xampp-control-panel/xampp-control-panel
or
B - /opt/lampp/htdocs/xampp/index.php ???

OK and you are getting Error 101 in your browser.

Q. Did you modify /opt/lampp/etc/extra/httpd-xampp.conf ?

If not, it is unlikely you can access lampp externally

Its also possible that your VM is the source of the 'disconnect'. You VM may not be set up correctly - you don't say what kind of a VM it is (A VM is NOT really the same as a VPS) Presumbaly Ubuntu is the Guest OS, what is the Host?

Technically - an http Error 101 can occur when http has switched protocols. Generally this is a 'connection reset'.

Its a transport issue of some sort.

Good Luck
:)
