static ip with apache 2.2

kwright asked 2 years ago

I have a static IP address from BT e.g (213.213.213.213) which I see when I use WSMI from my browser. I have a domain registered with register.com ([url]www.something.com[/url]) that points to 213.213.213.213. I have installed Apache 2.2 on Vista (not in the Program files section) which is very generic (unchanged from the install) and have tested that localhost sees "It works!" index.html OK.
My expectation would now be that when I type [url]www.something.com[/url] into my browser I would see "It works". Instead I see the BT Router Screen. I have fiddled around and cannot get past the BT Browser screen.
Register.com have checked their side and BT have checked their side, so there must be some trick I am missing.

Please can anyone help

Thanks
Ken

Have you set port 80 in the router to forward to the appropriate internal IP address?
