I've been trying to set up a CentOS server for the first time (ever setting up a Linux server). The installation went fine, I installed LAMPP (and the required dependencies for x86), used the lampp security tool, and went to
http://192.168.0.112:8888/ using elinks.
So far so good... But then I wanted to access the server from the other computers in my network (including the host of the VM). But I can't get it to work and keep getting 404's...
Note that I have another webserver running on this network (on port 80), so I changed
Listen 80 to
Listen 8888 in httpd.conf and forwarded 8888 in my router to the IP from the CentOS installation (static:
192.168.0.112, according to ifconfig).
Ping statistics for 192.168.0.112: Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss), Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds: Minimum = 0ms, Maximum = 0ms, Average = 0ms
- CentOS 6.5 minimal, installed from .iso
- LAMPP 1.8.1 (via wget from apachefriends.org)
- Windows 8.1 x64
- VirtualBox is using a Bridged Network Adapter (translated from Dutch: Netwerk bridge adapter)
Any ideas on how to fix this issue? I'm relatively new to networking and server as I'm a front-end developer myself, but I really want to get into back-end stuff.
It's getting really late now, so I'm off to bed. Hopefully I get some good insights in how networking/CentOS works in the morning!
Thanks in advance.
