Home Network Redirection RRS feed

  • Question

  • On my whs server, I installed apache and PHP some months ago.  I have a website that is served up internally, no outside internet access.  Everything has been running very well.  Then I got a bright idea. :(

    I decided to install tomcat so I could have some java apps.  I installed tomcat.  Everything was fine except that I had to include the port number when I accessed a java page.  I fiddled with the tomcat config files and then decided to reboot the whs box.

    When it came back up, i could no longer access my internal website by my fake domain name.  When I type in http://example.com, instead of serving up the page at http://example,com/index.html, I got http://example.com/home/default.aspx?gotodefault=true.

    There is nothing in my apache nor in my tomcat config files that would do this type of redirection.  I believe that somehow the whs iis server is doing this.  I did try removing tomecat and apache, then reinstalling just apache with the orginal config file to see if this would fix the issue.  But no dice.

    Has anyone run into this issue before?  Does anyone have any suggestions on what to look for in either whs or iis that might account for this?

    Lastly, I do not have remote access turned on in whs.

    Thanks for any help.

    Oh yeah, one more final thing.  When I type the name of my whs box in the address bar (as http://homeserver/), I get the correct web page to show up.

  • Wonder why you would run two different webservers on single machine. WHS already has IIS running which should also work perfectly with php and tomcat. Having said that, you probably need to have a look at the listen port for the Apache website, should be different from the WHS home page port (80).

  • Currently, iis seems to looking at port 55000, not 80.  Or at least that is what the WHS Site properties dialog (in the iis manager) shows.

    I thought that whs needed iis to run.  If I can shut it down and I can still run the WHS Console then I will shut it  Is iis necessary since I am not using the remote options?
