LAMP/Worpdress advice needed
I'm having a hell of a time setting up a Wordpress site. Here's the story so far:
I set up a Linux box on one of our virtual hosts. Everything goes fine (Ubuntu current version).
I install LAMP, via tasksel. All fine (barring a side-issue where the software updater refuses to work through the proxy until I abandon manual settings and go automatic).
I install Wordpress following these authoritative instructions. Doesn't work.
Uninstall Wordpress and try again with this even more authoritative guide. It works!
I nip back to my desktop Windows PC to see it, going to http://(IP Address)/wordpress. All I see is a text version of the site.
Googling hints that it's something to do with the hostname and site name and the config of either Apache or Wordpress (or both). This is from 'Settings - General' in the wp-admin console (which is only accessible from the linux server).
Both 'Wordpress Address (URL)' and 'Site Address (URL)' are currently 'localhost' per the instructions, though I'm pretty sure this can't be right for a production server. I have no idea what they're supposed to be. We do know what the domain of the site is, but it's not live yet.
Both of these computers (Linux server and my Windows desktop) are on the school network behind a Smoothwall box.
All advice welcome, warm fuzzy feelings in response.
