This is my first time installing a server on a remote webspace, so beware. (I know it could turn out to be a non-JBAS question in the end.)
I've installed a JRE, put JBoss AS 7 into some dir, and executed standalone.sh. The server starts up regularly:
As you can see from the trace I have the default datasource hooked up, ExampleDS. Port is 8080, all unchanged. In Windows localhost environments this usually suffices to get a connection to the server via http://localhost:8080/.
However, when I enter my domain name and/or IP address plus port 8080 I can't connect. Must be something missing in my Linux configuration. But what? Might there be a service not listening to the port? How do I find out? Does the standalone.xml need something I haven't set?
What would a Windows user not know to configure on a remote Linux machine (running in a regular virtual server env)?
PS: this is a standard JBoss AS 7 install, no cluster or anything.
