    192.168.1.4 is an IP on your home network. This is not accessible over the internet.

      Yeah, this was the IP the router gives me as a client. Should it be the routers main IP address I use?

        You can try but I don't think your server will be accessible over the Internet.

          It is not accessible by any network unfortunately. 192.168.x.x is a set of reserved private IP addresses and will not work.

          In order for us to view it, you'll need to give out your assigned IP your router has been given by your ISP as well as configuring it so that port 80 or port 8080 is forwarded to 192.168.1.4

            Yes, thats what I was trying to do. I have access to the router settings and was trying to setup port forwarding. But I can't seem to get it sorted correctly

              Most ISP's will block out the ability to run a web server. I pay for the ability to run a web server from home and I have to go to my ISP's website to unblock the email and web server ports.

                You could cheat by changing the port on which apache is running on

                  Everybody can get that IP, it is INTERNAL.

                  Go to www.whatismyip.com to find your public IP address.
                  That's the IP people should check

                  But if you have a router and you're not port forwarding your home port 80, you'll be fine.

                    I have done that, the IP I got if I enter that in the address bar takes me to my Router Admin log-on screen. So I kind of understand that must be the routers main IP address, and the link I posted with that IP above, is the IP the router has asigned too me as a client on the router. What I don't understand is how to setup the port forwarding on the router so access is granted over the web to allow my site to be viewed publicly.

                    I have a PDF manual here on my router which I can't upload here because its 4mb large for you to have a look at to see if you can tell me how to setup the router. Otherwise I would have uploaded the PDF manual

                      You definately want to disable that.. You should set it up so you can only access the router from your internal network.

                        I'll send you the IP via PM luke, tell me if you see the router log-on screen to confirm I'm right.

                            As said above , the IP addresses 192.168.x.x "eg: 192.168.1.1 and 192.168.1.4" are reserved for internal networks only.
                            You will have to look at your routers status, and or configuration type to find your external IP addr..

                              What router are you using? And is your webserver a separate machine or your workstation? I recommend the former.
