So I'm at Brown University, and they have every ethernet jack on campus publicly accessible from both a static IP address and a hostname (mine is goddard-87.resnet.brown.edu). Well, I'm trying to host WordPress, Ampache, and Coppermine Photo Gallery off of my Mini, and it's been working sporadically. I haven't been able to get it to work right for viewing besides on my machine. If you go to http://goddard-87.resnet.brown.edu/asdf (it's supposed to give you an error page) and look at the bottom, Apache identifies itself at its loopback address.

It's also weird that http://goddard-87.resnet.brown.edu/ shows my modified Apache index page, but going to my WordPress folder http://goddard-87.resnet.brown.edu/blog/ gives you an error that should say "www.minibooter.local could not be found". Minibooter is the name of my Mini, but I don't know why it's trying to resolve to that instead of goddard-87.resnet.brown.edu.

If it makes a difference, I'm behind a router that has HTTP forwarding enabled.

Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?

Okay, I fixed it. Seems I just had to run "sudo hostname goddard-87.resnet.brown.edu" in the terminal to fix it. Hope this helps someone else down the road as I spent 3 hours easy on this.

It looks good. The black and orange colors are perfect for today.
