Why can't I see my forum from the internet?

I have a phpbb forum that I created, and I am also running Apache2Triad server on my WinXP computer.

I can view the forum at forum.jivetechnics.com with the MOD_rewrite script I inserted into the server configuration file, httpd.conf, but when I go to view the forum at forum.jivetechnics.com, there is a blank white page

My webmail works the same way with webmail.jivetechnics.com and that works fine but the problem is with the forum site.

I have already set the CNAMEs in my DNS records to point to these sites correctly.

Why is the page not showing up? did I forget to open a port for my Linksys router...

Any help is appreciated!!!             --Thanks, flybeye

Where is your server located?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

this is a phpBB forum i have customized after downloading it from phpBB.com

i believe it uses index.php as the default page

my server is located in the c:/apache2triad/htdocs/ folder

the forum is a subfolder /forum

i am using a the mod_rewrite directive right now which allows the http://webmail.jivetechnics.com to work, the ports are open for this also

the forum site, which is similiar does not open from the internet, only on the local machine
i believe it might be a port that is not open but i am not sure

I should have been more specific.

Located at an ISP or located on your private network, behind a firewall.

It seems the latter, since you mentioned ports being open.

Do you have a static IP or a Dynamic IP?

Ensure that ports: 80 and 8080 are open on your router.
As said, make sure that your firewall isn't blocking this traffic (as is normally the case).

Is your server application definitely running? Are you running it as a Service?

Okay, well I get this when I do a view source....so, it is there, but it is a blank gray page.

I'll look through this for any obvious problems, but at first glance I would start checking your paths to links, include files, etc.

>> dynamic IP
Have you rebooted since pointing the domain to your machine? As this will obviously mean that it's pointing to the wrong IP.

Also, ensure that your XP firewall isn't blocking the traffic: and that it's set so that all HTTP web traffic is to run from your machine.

i think you mean it looks like the following:

        border-color : #000000;
}

/* The text input fields background colour */
input.post, textarea.post, select {
        background-color : #D3D3D3;
}

input { text-indent : 2px; }

/* The buttons used for bbCode styling in message post */
input.button {
        background-color : #EFEFEF;
        color : #000000;
        font-size: 11px; font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
}

/* The main submit button option */
input.mainoption {

        font-weight : bold;
}

/* None-bold submit button */
input.liteoption {

        font-weight : normal;
}

/* This is the line in the posting page which shows the rollover

No, I mean I was getting that garbage output and not valid HTML.  Amoung other things, the opening body tag is in there somewhere.  Whatever is generating the garbage characters is causing the page not to display in the web browser.

Better but you still have garbage in the body.  You've got menus, etc.

I can run this forum when directly hookup up fine but when I am behind the router for some reason cannot view it from the internet.

any other suggestions?

Check the ports open on the firewall.

Usually, you'd just need these two ports (for HTTP traffic):

   80  and  8080

>>which ports need to be open?

Sorry, must have missed your reply.  Opening ports may not be enough.  You'll probably need to port forward port 80 to your internal machine.

Look up your router in www.portforward.com for detailed instructions.
