Anyone, please let me know what you guys think is wrong with my system.

When my system reboots, apache starts up fine and shows it is started, HOWEVER, it will not fufill page requests UNTIL I open a browser and type in localhost or

In other words...if I don't open a browser on my server and go to localhost or, my website is down.

ANY Guidance or thoughts greatly appreciated...been searching all night to try and fix this issue.

Huh? Wha?

Sorry I missed this thread this morning... Have you got any more information since then?

How are pages requested from your server -- by IP address, by domain? Is it a Web server, or on an intranet? Got any caching or security modules enabled? Have you got a software firewall running? Hardware firewall or a firewall/router?

Can you wake up the server from another workstation on your LAN, using your server's LAN IP address?

The devil's hiding in the details somewhere...
