    phpbb forum

    hey guys,

    just a quick question regards to phpBB3.

    I've installed it, configured it with Apache and MySQL etc working great....

    Only thing is that I cant figure out how to get to the forum using the address, I can access it using:

    http://localhost/forums (on the server)

    but not with

    http://scs-srv-it01/forums or http://10.16.1.45/forums (when i go to any other server/workstation i cant)

    Its going to be someting so simple I know! so sorry.

    Either enable port forwarding on your Router to allow port 80, if your going through a router.

    OR

    Firewall?

    Check in your httpd.conf file and make sure this line is set as follows:

    Code:
    Listen 80
    where 80 is the HTTP Port you are using..
    If it has an IP address it will only listen to that IP, if you can only access it via localhost then it might be reading
    Code:
    Listen 127.0.0.1:80
    Also at ServerName and UseCanonicalName

    these 3 lines are set to the following on my config.

    Code:
    Listen 80
    ServerName <my-server-name>:80
    UseCanonicalName On
    remember to restart Apache if you change anything..

    If you're running it on windows my first suggestion would be that port 80 is being blocked by the firewall.

    Also if you're using wampserver you need to right click on the icon and select "put online" or somesuch else you'll get the issue you describe - localhost access only
