Here, specify the network interfaces and ports Apache uses to listen for incoming requests. You can select any combination of existing network interfaces and their respective IP addresses. Ports from all three ranges (well-known ports, registered ports, and dynamic or private ports) that are not reserved by other services can be used. The default setting is to listen on all network interfaces (IP addresses) on port 80.
Check Open Port In Firewall to open the ports in the firewall that the Web server listens on. This is necessary to make the Web server available on the network, which can be a LAN, WAN, or the public Internet. Keeping the port closed is only useful in test situations where no external access to the Web server is necessary. If you have multiple network interfaces, click Firewall Details… to specify on which interface(s) the port(s) should be opened.
Click Next to continue with the configuration.
well i cannot **Check Open Port In Firewall to open the ports in the firewall ** - why !?
If the packages follow the openSUSE packaging rules, they should go in /srv/www and the config files in /etc/apache2 with the ability to configure via YaST…
I YaST Firewall, you just need to add via ‘allowed services’ and add the http(s) server(s) depending if you doing ssl. You would then need to open the router firewall and configure this to port forward to you internal ip address.
Great - i found the path to /srv/www
Well - i did a quick and dirty configuration with YAST; At the moment i do not know what i sitll have to configure in the files in /etc/apache2 with the ability to configure via YaST… ]
Well what you mention here is very very interesting:
I YaST Firewall, you just **need to add via ‘allowed services’ **and add the http(s) server(s) depending if you doing ssl. You would then need to open the router firewall and configure this to port forward to you internal ip address.
Wll - No need to add add the http(s) server(s) at this moment. I do not need these services right now!
BUT how can i make sure that i have opened the router firewall and configured this to port forward to my internal ip address!?
I need to make sure that i did all that is necessary here. What is my internal ip-adress. Where can i find out this one!? How to treat and proceed with the internal-ip-adress, once i have found this!?
**UPDATE: **well great - i was convinced by your encouraggin words - and i gave it a try. First i have entered localhost into the browser! AND believe it or not: I got the following response: IT Works - great i am overwhelmed.!!!
Well waht do i have to add if i want to run PHPMYADMIN as a Tool that helps me to manage a MySQL database!? That is the most improtrant question new!!
