Forgive me I'm totally new to web hosting.
I'm using this digitalocean.com/community/articles/a-straightforward-guide-on-installing-web-facing-applications-on-a-vps

When I get to the part where I need go to /your_domain/forum/install/

I get the server at 192.168.x.xxx is taking too long to respond.

I'm trying to install mybb on the Ubuntu server with Apache over a local network connection.
What ports do I need open? 80?
Well it turns out port 80 was blocked by the Ubuntu firewall.
To anyone in the future who might be experiencing a similar issue follow the steps below.

As Root
1. 'iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 80 -j ACCEPT'
2. 'iptables-save > /etc/iptables-rules'
3. 'iptables-restore < /etc/iptables-rules'

Reply if it helped you. Thank you.
