I just bought a computer, installed centOS 6. I have installed LAMP, I just don't know how to connect my server to my domain name. I've been working on this for 5 days.

Hello,

Here is a good tutorial on how to set it up https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-set-up-a-host-name-with-digitalocean
As soon as the DNS propagation (1-24 hours) ends your website's IP should automatically turn into a domain. If you havn't made any changes to Apache config, it's gotta be okay.
So is my server IP address my external or the one i get from ifconfig?
Ok I got it working on my server. I can go to leetnews.net and it will appear. But when I try to access it from a different computer it shows website unavailable.
Did you create a DNS A record, for leetnews.net, pointing @ to your external/public IP address?
