Hi - I'm back. Just got a new computer at last !

So, I've intalled Ubuntu LAMP Server, and I'm trying to set up a web server.

OCportal works fantastically well from a local machine, but not across the internet.

I can reach the ocportal site, but it displays without formating - just the words, all in the wrong place on the screen.

Any idea where I should start looking for the problem ?

Thanks,
Nick Kruger

All I can say off hand is this is CSS not loading. Look at the HTML source and see what the CSS URLs are, then consider what base URL change or network config you might to do to make it work.

  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Thank you, I'll go through the configuration settings again. If I can reach the site, then it can't be a port forward issue. I'll post again.

Yes, the URL's are wrong !

In the meantime I have discovered that my DNS was not being updated correctly - I fixed that (I think) - dig now reports correctly. Added CNAME my dns server.

I suppose it's to much to hope for that the URL's will magically fix themselves - somehow.

Surely I don't have to re-install the site ?

Let me close this thread.

I found the problem in the end, which as is so often the case, turned out to be firewall related.

In spite of forwarding the relevent ports from the router, the router firewall was still blocking incoming traffic. Apache was fine all along.

I should now be able to get a ocportal site up quickly tomorrow.
