I've installed Mediawiki on Ubuntu server 14.04. Mediawiki works perfectly when I type the hostname of the server into a browser on one of my network's Windows clients. I've used both:
Both work fine in Chrome and IE running in Windows.
But neither work on either Ubuntu Desktop or Mac OS clients. Enter both the URLs above and I get an error message telling me the server isn't found.
I think it's a problem with Apache, because its default page is accessible from Windows clients if I simply type:
On Linux or Mac OS clients, that just gets a 'server not found' error. On both operating systems, I can get to the default Apache page using the IP address - but simply adding '/mediawiki' to the IP address then also brings up 'server not found'.
But, if I type the following into Mac OS or Ubuntu Desktop clients, I do see the Wiki's home page:
However, I can only see the contents of the page - devoid of all formatting, as if a link to a relevant CSS file had been broken.
I'm reading up on Apache now - but this doesn't seem to be a common problem (or possibly I'm not using the right search terms).
Can anyone give some pointers as to where I should be looking for faults here? I'm assuming it's some kind of problems with DNS settings. Any tips on where to start would be much appreciated.
