Had working external internet with WAMP Server but can't get it to work with UniServer


Recommended Posts

I have decided to run a production server on a WAMP set-up. I started with WAMPServer but decided to move to Uniserve for security and ease of moving.


My WAMPServer set up allowed me to access my website over the net using my domain.


I have completely uninstalled all WAMPServer components and am starting fresh with UniServer.


I have a working Magento placeholder site on localhost.


I cannot get Coral-8 (the server maangement tool) to show:


Accessible from Internet = Yes


It always says no, and testing confirms it.


I know the DNS is correctly routing traffic to my computer on 80, as it worked yesterday on WAMPServer.


I have edited .htaccess and commented out the 4 lines.


I have edited the httpd.conf file, key bits are:




<Directory "W:/UniServer/www">


# Possible values for the Options directive are "None", "All",

# or any combination of:

# Indexes Includes FollowSymLinks SymLinksifOwnerMatch ExecCGI MultiViews


# Note that "MultiViews" must be named *explicitly* --- "Options All"

# doesn't give it to you.


# The Options directive is both complicated and important. Please see

# http://httpd.apache.org/docs/trunk/mod/core.html#options

# for more information.


Options Indexes FollowSymLinks

# Options Indexes Includes



# AllowOverride controls what directives may be placed in .htaccess files.

# It can be "All", "None", or any combination of the keywords:

# Options FileInfo AuthConfig Limit


AllowOverride All



# Controls who can get stuff from this server.


Require all granted


Order allow,deny

Allow from all






I have my windows host file set up correctly, and a firewall exception for the Apache version on drive w (and removed WAMPServer Apache firewall exception)


I am at my wits end here!


Any help greatly appreciated.

Also, there are no access requests or errors in the Apache logs, which suggests that Windows isn't passing traffic through, or there is some basic permissions missing somewhere.


There are definitely exceptions in the Windows firewall for Apache, and it's the Apache in the UniServer drive.


Confused and stuck...

Everything was configured correctly. It was a firewall problem, even though the correct exceptions were there, windows wasn't re-routing the traffic. Removed the permissions and ran Apache again and re-permissioned it, works!


Perhaps the WAMPserver firewall settings were getting in the way (although they were disabled and windows reckoned it was sending the packets to the right httpd process)


Off to drink now.

I guess when the server status says no Internet access, it's correct :)


BTW, the firewall sets a hole only on a per-program basis, so WAMPserver's Apache .exe is DIFFERENT from The Uniform Server's.
