Help with Apache on Centos droplet

November 23, 2014 2.1k views

I just installed Apache onto my Centos 7 droplet following the instructions, however when I go to my web browser and put in my ip address nothing comes up. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong but I'd love some feedback.

Thanks

  • Hi! Are there any errors in Apache's log file?

    sudo tail -40 /var/log/httpd/error_log
    
  • Here's what I see.

    I've tried configuring the hosts, and network files as well with no luck.

  • Nothing that sticks out no, I would post the output but it won't let me. I've also tried configuring the hosts and network file to no avail. There's definitely some disconnect somewhere.

  • Okay I got it!

    Seems like it was a combo of adding my server name in the hosts file and allowing port 80 in iptables.
