    i have installed my server in the "Perfekt fedora core 4 server installation" how to. the installation went easy but im experiencing some problems.
    First thing is the dynamic ip.
    i have set my hostname and domain name so it should be
    but i cant connet to this adress...
    the ip works perfectly...

    This is my ifconfig:
    im not a very experienced linux user and dont know much about network in general.

    and i have a problem with the characters on the homesite. it wont recognise swedish characters like "åäö". iv'e looked into the httpd.conf and everything seems to be in order, but im not sure.

    Thanks for the great How-to

    That's normal in Fedora, I have the same behaviour (in other distributions everything is fine). I once found a tutorial on how to fix it, but I don't know the URL anymore...:(

    ah okey.. :(

    about the dynamic ip.
    all the listed ports are open to the server but i can still not connect to it.
    and i cant connect to it in local network either, shouldent this work without router ports open?
    do i have to register the dns somewere in order to connect to it?

    You can read about the characterproblem here:

    Connecting locally like "theserverslocalip:80" doesnt work ?
    If you have a firewall the port 80 must be opened and pointing to the servers local ip to get a connection from outside.
    Are the Apache running..? in console type ps ax and watch for a apache process.

    Because doesn't exist in DNS! You have to create an A record for pointing to
