Webserver Installation unter OpenSUSE 11.4 | mnTechBlog

(sorry - this is German - but i guess that you can figure out what goes on here)

Well all went nice! I was able to install:

But in the configuration-step with the following picture (Http-Server-Wizzard 1-5 Netzwerkgeräteauswahl that is networkdevice-options ) i cannot choose to
open the firewall -

i only have the options:

127.0.0.1
192.168.178.28

the Option to open up the Firewall-Port i cannot activate. Why

Just give me some ideas what i can do

I look forward to hear from you

greetings db1:)

hello all

again me - well i found some cool - advices: here

Chapter

30.2.3. Configuring Apache with YaST¶

30.2.3.1.1. Network Device Selection¶

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 !?

look forward to hear from you

are you not able to see the open port box and the four buttons at the
bottom?

if not, maybe you just need to move it up so you can see the open port
box and the buttons…

try: hold down Alt, hold down a left click on the window and move it up
until you can see it all…

btw, there is a german forum, if you prefer that…it is listed on the
forums front page: http://forums.opensuse.org/

but, you remain welcome here!!

well - i finally configured Mysql now - and well now i am able to test all the stuff! BUT how can i do this.

Can install some stuff into the http-web-root - for example a cms, eg . a joomla-system!?

Hi
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.

Hi Malcom many many thanks for this hints!

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!!

loook forward to hear from you

greetings
