    Exclamation Apache server not accessible on local ntwk since upgrade to Ubuntu 14.04

    Hi all,

    I modestly develop a small PHP / MySQL application called Music_Portal for home usage i.e. only accessible from the machines of my local home network.

    To do so, I'm using XAMPP for Linux version 1.8.3-1 on my server, the name of the machine hosting this server is Desktop-Ubuntu (not very original, I know ).
    So up to now, my client machines accessed the server and the application with the following path / URL in the address bar of the client browser :
    desktop-ubuntu/Music_Portal/
    Important to note that all my (home) clients work either under Linux / Ubuntu or Windows using several browsers such as Firefox, IE or Chrome.
    Well, in short, up to a very recent time, all that perfectly worked.

    These last days, I made several modifications in my application. I tested them locally on my server / host machine (Desktop-Ubuntu). In that case, I access the application in the address bar of my browser using : http://localhost/Music_Portal ==> so far so good. Then I wanted to perform a "real life" test on one of my clients under Windows + Firefox : KO, the server is not responding anymore, Firefox displays (sorry in french) "Le delai d'attente est depasse" meaning "timeout expired". Same result from another client running Ubuntu (14.04 too). Whereas my local network seems to work properly since I succeed to ping the server machine from any client machine.

    Then, what changed since my last "real life" tests ? Of course, I made some evolutions in my application but at first glance, nothing to do with my issue. Nothing changed either in my XAMPP configuration. But on the other hand, last week (April 25th to be precise), I upgraded from Ubuntu 13.10 to Ubuntu 14.04. and last week end (last Friday), I installed the last updates available. So I'm thinking this is where I have to investigate, compatibility issue between XAMPP 1.8.3-1 and Ubuntu 14.04.

    Could anyone more advised and competent than I am help to sort this out and fix this issue ?

    Note : I posted also the same topic on the Apache friends forum but unsuccessfuly up to now. Apache friends distributing XAMPP.
    Note 2 : I would have liked to attach my httpd.conf file but I do not succeed to attach it

    Thanks for your support

    Thumbs up Re: Apache server not accessible on local ntwk since upgrade to Ubuntu 14.04

    Hi all,

    Issue fixed !

    The issue came from the fact that my host machine name, desktop-ubuntu, disappeared from my DNS table, I don't know really why, and not 100% sur this may be related to the 14.04 upgrade. I then updated my DNS table and everything is working fine now !

    Thanks a lot !
