Website - Local issues with FQDN

Hello,

I would like to be able to access the website I have on centos 8 / apache from the same network that the actual server is hosted. Howrver, my website through my FQDN is only accessible outside the local network. when i enter my FQDN into a web browser locally it goes to my routers home page instead of the index page i have setup. In order to visit my websites home page i would have to point it to the ip address of the server.

I get a connection refused when I'm on the same network that the server is on. If I'm on another network it connects just fine. I cannot access the website index.html page using htttp://localhost or 127.0.0.1 either. I can access it using my web servers IP of 10.0.1.XXX. Any ideas why I cant go to my own domain name?

This sounds like a general problem with domestic routers, they often cannot loop back into themselves from inside. Try adding your LAN ip address into /etc/hosts and name it there.

I think you are right. I’ve added:

10.0.1.110 domain.com www.domain.com

but no luck.

It’s i've open enable WAN management and now i get the router login page again, I suspect the “connection refused” was due to the router refusing connection to management page, not the server refusing connection.
