    Unless you have done something special to map a name to your IP address you need to access your site with http://localhost from the same machine or http://your-ip-address in your browser.

    Also, if you are going to install server software on your laptop you should probably enable a firewall. The easiest way is:
    Code:
    sudo ufw enable
    that will deny all incoming traffic, which should be fine unless you ssh into your laptop or actually want to host your site. In that case read the documentation at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UFW for information on how to open those ports.
