    Hello i am currently trying to setup my own Windows Apache Server and am having several problems...
    I am using ZPanel for a control panel for my server i have tried getting support from them but they either take days to respond or dont even help period.

    Right now my computer is constantly having domain issues with the public. I have all ports open for 20-145 inbound and outbound tcp and udp on my windows firewall and router. I have no type of program or anti virus that blocks ports, I have Avast Server Security 5 and that is set to "exclude" my web server's directory path.

    These are my domains:
    http://zyphos.co.cc (Does not work 100% of the time, will only work sometime if you add www. next to it which i would like to fix.)
    http://www.zyphos.co.cc (This works if the server "allows" it to work, it should show it no matter what empty folder or not it should show a empty apache directory but instead shows a blank page. Even when it is full you will probably get to see the folder once and then it is a blank page again.)
    http://forums.zyphos.co.cc (This was meant to be our forums but yet another domain that does not work...)
    http://panel.zyphos.co.cc (This is SUPPOSED to be our server control panel, however it does not work period.)
    http://mail.zyphos.co.cc (You would think this is our webmail right? Not on this server... For some reason this is our control panel... WHY!?)

    I am using CLOUDFLARE for my DNS services for my domain, so if someone knows how i would setup CloudFlare to work with BIND on my server please enlighten me...

    You didn't say wether you're trying to run this from a network from home/work, etc...

    Many people think that if they can see the Internet, they should be able to setup and run a hosting platform.

    Many ISP's forbid it and start blocking traffic ( request to the server ), as a way of informing the user to stop it... Without actually telling the to stop it... They just make the traffic so erratic that many people give up.

    To be able to run apache on windows, you need to make sure that all windows based hosting services are disabled... Because all web servers use port 80, but not all routers allow port 80 pass through ( some have a DMZ to allow those connections, but port mapping is much more secure... Any pc that is in the DMZ is open to all ports, port mapping only allows connection based on your port settings... All other port request ( shell, telnet, WebDAV, FTP ) are all ignored by default.

    I have seen ISP's also block DNS updates to their own DNS SERVERS if they realize that a DNA pointer is pointing at one of their residential accounts. Has little effect on the rest of the world, but would affect anyone on their network from connecting to it... And they can do it of they choose, if they don't expressedly allow web servers on their network.

    If you are not running from a residential account, none of this matters. But understand that during the DNS UPDATE period ( 24-48 hours from the time your IP changes ), connectivity is going to be erratic.

    If you need stable connectivity, suggest you get a static IP address assigned. That is really the only way to get around connectivity issues regarding your DNS responses. Dynamic ip update services are usually pretty good to propogate out the changes... But like any other web service, every provider is different and every provider has issues.
