Re: need help with accessing koha from outside via

Hi Alvaro,

I think that you misunderstand the netstat output there.

"tcp6       0      0 :::80     :::*      LISTEN      1113/apache2" means that it's using a TCP socket that supports both IPv4 and IPv6.

1. Remove the entries from /etc/hosts
2. Do "nslookup"
3. Confirm that the output of the above command matches your current home IP address
4. Ensure that your Apache configuration for the OPAC has either a ServerName or ServerAlias directive matching
5. Reload/restart Apache to be on the safe side
6. That should be it

That said, I'd be careful exposing a test version of Koha to the Internet, especially if you're not familiar with Koha or Apache.

Hi Heinz

Usually this issue means Apache is receiving a call for a site that does
"not exist" so it shows its default page.

Check that your koha site is enabled (sudo a2ensite bibliotthek.conf)

As per

tcp6       0      0 :::80     :::*      LISTEN      1113/apache2

Seems apache is not listening to tcp4 and also port 8080 is not enabled

You should have in your apache port file
Listen 80
Listen 8080

In some cases, there are conflict with IPV6. If you do not use it you can
disable it by:

After doing those changes, you need to restart apache

sudo service apache2 restart
