apache2 configuration in OpenSUSE ##

Dear All,

I have the below version of suse here , it seems to be a desktop version. Can someone provide me a link to download the server version of OpenSUSE 11 or higher?

Again, to the problem. I have configured webmin in the server and I could access it through browser inside the suse using http://ip:10000. But I need to access the webmin from outside also (even from a windows pc's browser but in the same network). I think, apache2 to be configured for this. Can someone guide me in this to configure.


linux-yal8:/etc/init.d # ./webmin status
Webmin (pid 10899) is running
linux-yal8:/etc/init.d # ./apache2 status
Checking for httpd2: running
linux-yal8:/etc/init.d # uname -a
Linux linux-yal8 2.6.31.5-0.1-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT 2009-10-26 15:49:03 +0100 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
linux-yal8:/etc/init.d # uname -r
2.6.31.5-0.1-desktop
linux-yal8:/etc/init.d #

I'm more familiar with RedHat and Debian, but I understand there's only one version of OpenSUSE, but it has multiple kernel packages optimized for different purposes. You're apparently running a desktop-optimized kernel. Just install another kernel package with different optimizations and reboot.

Apache is so flexible, even its configuration files can be laid out in many ways. Look into /etc/apache2, /etc/httpd or similar path: you should find the Apache main configuration directory. It is often broken down into multiple files: if so, I'd expect one of the files be the configuration for the Webmin service.

If the service is restricted to localhost, you might find configuration lines like this:

Allow from 127.0.0.1
Deny from all

For example, if you want to allow access from network 11.22.33.* (i.e. netmask 255.255.255.0 or /24), you might add a third "Allow" line:

Allow from 127.0.0.1
Allow from 11.22.33.0/24
Deny from all

You can probably do this through Webmin too, but frankly I'm not familiar enough with it and SuSE to give any suggestions for that.

Apache has extensive documentation on the web:
