Apache Installation on Fedora 20 Droplet

Posted September 22, 2014 2.8k views

So I just launched a droplet, performed all the updates and was going to go for a LAMP install. yum update went through, no issues. yum install httpd went through, no issues again. I started the service with “service httpd start” as well as enabled it at boot with “chkconfig httpd on

I still however get a timed out webpage when I try to go to my server’s IP address. What could be causing this issue?

try this:

iptables -I INPUT -p tcp -m tcp –dport 80 -j ACCEPT;service iptables save

Then try again. If that fails, run this, and tell me what you get:

netstat -plant|grep “:80”
