    Re: How do I access my apache server from the internet...

    Are you behind a firewall / router?
    If so, you need to forward port 80 to the internal IP of the system running Apache.

    # This is the main Apache HTTP server configuration file. It contains the
    # configuration directives that give the server its instructions.
    # See <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/> for detailed information.
    # In particular, see
    # <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/directives.html>
    # for a discussion of each configuration directive.
    #
    # Do NOT simply read the instructions in here without understanding
    # what they do. They're here only as hints or reminders. If you are unsure
    # consult the online docs. You have been warned.
    #
    # Configuration and logfile names: If the filenames you specify for many
    # of the server's control files begin with "/" (or "drive:/" for Win32), the
    # server will use that explicit path. If the filenames do *not* begin
    # with "/", the value of ServerRoot is prepended -- so "logs/foo.log"
    # with ServerRoot set to "C:/AppServ/Apache2.2" will be interpreted by the
    # server as "C:/AppServ/Apache2.2/logs/foo.log".
    #
    # NOTE: Where filenames are specified, you must use forward slashes
    # instead of backslashes (e.g., "c:/apache" instead of "c:\apache").
    # If a drive letter is omitted, the drive on which Apache.exe is located
    # will be used by default. It is recommended that you always supply
    # an explicit drive letter in absolute paths, however, to avoid
    # confusion.

    # This comment line, the first line of the script, consists of the symbols

    # can execute this specific script. For a perl script, with perl.exe in
    # the C:\Program Files\Perl directory, the shebang line should be:

    #!c:/program files/perl/perl

    # Note you _must_not_ indent the actual shebang line, and it must be the
    # first line of the file. Of course, CGI processing must be enabled by
    # the appropriate ScriptAlias or Options ExecCGI directives for the files
    # or directory in question.
    #
    # However, Apache on Windows allows either the Unix behavior above, or can
    # use the Registry to match files by extention. The command to execute
    # a file of this type is retrieved from the registry by the same method as
    # the Windows Explorer would use to handle double-clicking on a file.
    # These script actions can be configured from the Windows Explorer View menu,
    # 'Folder Options', and reviewing the 'File Types' tab. Clicking the Edit
    # button allows you to modify the Actions, of which Apache 1.3 attempts to
    # perform the 'Open' Action, and failing that it will try the shebang line.
    # This behavior is subject to change in Apache release 2.0.

    Go to PortForward.com, find your router, find HTTP for the service, and it will demonstrate how to forward port 80 to an internal IP address.

    make sure port 80 is not blocked by the ISP.

    use port 8080, restart apache, map the port in the router. try it again.

    try with ipaddress:8080

    To check your port from the outside, you can browse to www.canyouseeme.org and check port 80. You will need to forward your port on the router back to your server as DrSmall mentioned however, before you can do this.

    check for firewall issues on your server, that is, there might be a firewall running in the background blocking tcp/ip ports.
    For my systems, I installed a firewall program (i.e. FireStarter) and enabled tcp traffic trough the www port.
