Not Solved Help For A Newbie
#1
Not Solved
Hello Everyone! First off I wanted to say hello as I just registered and was hoping to get a few questions answered so I can continue on my journey in trying to get our company a new forum. Just to let everyone know that I am a complete newbie in forum/web building, not a stranger in IT though, but somehow got the short end of the stick and was put in charge of trying to find the best one. In my search I came upon My BB and thought that it was a good fit for our company and had all the features that we needed. I have been given a virtual copy of our web server (Windows 2003) with admin rights to play around with My BB. Unfortunately, every time I put in the ip address of the server, the current webpage still comes up. How can I disable this? What configure file contains this information? I guess my question is what tips can you guys give me in turning it into a fresh web server, like there was nothing on it… has Apache 2.2, MySql 5.1, PHP, and Microsoft SQL Server 2005. I can get to the server by remote desktop(192.168….) so 1.6.4 has been downloaded, extracted, and placed in a folder as instructed in the virtual space. I did not have to use an FTP program to upload the files… Thanks, in advance to anyone and everyone that can help…

Apache is installed, but is it running on the server? what happens you are RDP'd in an open a browser on the remote machine and go to http://localhost ?

have you configured your vhosts for Apache to listen on the proper IP and direct traffic accordingly?
Lost interest, sold my sites, will browse here once in a while. It's been fun.

First off I want to thank you for your response and Happy Thanksgiving as I am truly a newie but this has been on my to learn list...

When I remote into the server and run http://localhost, our company website pops up... I assume since this is a virtual copy of our production webserver this is what should come up. Unfortunately, I want the forum instead of our site so I can play and configure it to our liking... How would I go about disabling this so that this does not appear and be able to install the forum on this webserver?

When I search for the vhost file, there are a list of them that comes back... Which one should I be concerned about?

^ you may have to setup myBB in a folder of the virtual server .. for eg. http://localhost/forum brings up the community ...

Your current company site is running on what webserver, Apache (or equiv) or IIS?
What RDBMS is your current site using?
Do you know where the current site is residing on the file system?
Is the Apache service running on the server?

Once you identify this information, we can help you more.

I believe it's running on apache. When I stop the apache service our site does not come up. When I restart it, it appears again.
The file(folder) is located on C:\. I assume because when I move it from this location and put it on my desktop, the site does not appear... I move it back, it apperas again.

For RDBMS, you mean MySql 5.1, Microsoft SQL Server 2005, correct?

Thanks but when I tried that(http://localhost/foldername*, it tells me that the webpage cannot be found. The whole my bb folder is located on c:\ in the webserver
