Newbie question: How to make my arc blog public?
2 points by revorad 3782 days ago | 5 comments
I have just started playing with arc and am loving it. I want to try and serve web pages from my home computer e.g. host my blog on my own computer and make it available online. But I'm struggling to figure out how to do it.

I signed up for a hostname on to point to my ip address. But when I try to access http://myhostname:8080/blog from another computer I can't connect.

I remember seeing posts here where people put up their arc apps. Did you have similar problems? I'd greatly appreciate any help.

Do you have a firewall or wireless router you're using? If so, you'll have to open up port 8080.

A better solution might be to supply an explicit 80 as an argument to asv. I.e. change bsv to:

    (def bsv ()
      (ensure-dir postdir*)
      (asv 80))

I tried that but it still doesn't solve the problem that my ISP blocks port 80 by default.

You're right, I think I fixed it now. Thanks!

Once you get it up and running, would you mind posting a link?
