Fresh 14.04, Apache not boradcasting to my public IP
I am a web developer and I want to give severing a try. I'm a beginner-
I set up a (L)AMP stack on windows through a software called "WAMP". After forwarding my local IP, and a few clicks later, I had a website broadcasting via my public IP.
Now I want to do it the fun way, so bought myself an old $25 C2Duo computer. Installed a fresh copy of 14.04 ubuntu server, selecting OpenSSH in the installation and installing apache2 via command line after I had logged in - "sudo apt-get install apache2".
That's the ONLY thing I have done to this computer. I have forwarded the port on the router.
I can browse the start up page from localhost, and by visiting the server's local IP from another computer, but I can not browse the site via my public IP address.
Are there more settings I need to change? I had the exact same problem on my test ubuntu server.
Can you help with this problem?
