FIREHOL and LIGHTTPD doesn't like each other.
This is the fourth time I've reinstalled my Linode, and this time I wanted to try to get it right so I could leave it alone!
I've got Ubuntu running on it now.
I installed FIREHOL and LIGHTTPD with apt-get (Universe).
Here are my FIREHOL rules:
interface eth0 internet
server ping accept
server ICMP accept
server http accept
client all accept
I can Ping my box. I can't get on to my HTTP server, however. It says "Cannot establish a connection."
If I open Links on my linode shell and go to localhost, I get my document. If I open Links and try to get in through my IP address (184.108.40.206) OR my linode name (li9-114.members.linode.com) OR my domain name(s) (autodmclabs.com / autodmc.org).
From my workstation, I cannot get to it by IP or Domain Name(s).
This is wierd. I know it works and is working, I just can't seem to get through my Firehol.
Are you sure lighttpd is bound to eth0? It will bind to all interfaces by default, but check your /etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf.
apparently doesn't me "the server is on the localhost" but means instead "this server serves ONLY localhost."
adds to now overstuffed file labeled "I thought meant _ in Linux, but was wrong
Thanks AGAIN, TehDan. Now, if I can get Ejabberd resetup, I'll be exactly back where I was…
…except on Ubuntu.
