ScooobyDont Posted February 25, 2011 Report Share Posted February 25, 2011 Hi all, As the title states I am a complete newbie and need some questions answered or maybe just have me pointed in the right direction. My scenerio is as follows: I started playing around with WAMP and Joomla to create a website for my local sports team. I have almost finished the site and want to be able to host it on my own computer (Win XP Pro box). I was reading that the WAMP i was using was only recommended for local production as it was not too secure. So I went looking for a better solution and hence how I found this product and site. I have downloaded and installed the product. I was able to backup my website and install it on the uniform server. I am able to see it locally but no one else (outside of my network) can see it. I have a domain name that points to a static IP. My computer is behind a router. I have setup static IP and DNS on the computer. I have forwared port 80 to my computer but still unable to see it. I can RDP into the computer from outside my network. I can also see the website if I type in the static IP. I thought initially it was a DNS naming issue and that it would be taken care of in a couple of days. It has been almost a week now. So, I ask you all, what is needed to make this my website accessible to everyone else. Is there things I can/should be checking to see if they are working? Any help would really be appreciated.
