    Hi
    I'm running Windows XP and I'm hosting my website using IIS. My web site www.alexcreative.com is not working and I think it all started since I installed the new security patch from Windows update.
    I'm going to try Apache or any other application like Apache to host my web site so I can determine if the problem is with IIS plus I can have it as an alternative :)

    Can some one tell me of any other Apache like application that is compatible with Windows XP?

    And is Apache pretty much my best choise to host my website in Windpows XP after IIS?

    Thanks

    Alex

    Thanks TheWendyGuy :) That don't suppost to be my IP (64.85.73.36) My ip is 24.114.57.185, could be that my cable company changed the IP. I have to check on that

    That could be related to your problem with your site then perhaps. Unless you are behind a router or something... IIS always needs to know the IP address that it is running on. Just my tuppence worth again

    I called the cable company and I have the same IP and everything look the same, so I don't know where that IP number you gave me came from and why is not working if the IP is the same :(

    Just noticed -- something is funny with your web server settings, I think. www.alexcreative.com doesn't work for me, it points to 64.85.73.36. However, alexcreative.com works and goes to the same IP.


    Edit: scratch that. www... just started working for me, too. I don't know what would cause it to work only once in a while...

    I would try including this info in an email to exodus.net and see if they can shed any light on this. It looks like perhaps some sort of a routing issue with them...

    Try emailing them. With a routing loop that I had on a site of mine a while ago I had help within a few hours of emailing the people that were responsible for my problem.

    Well I just tried your site again, and for the first time so far, the site came up. It is also now pointing to the correct IP.

    Looks like it got resolved somewhere along the line by itself.

    Usually though the trick is just to send an email to [email protected] and then wherever it looks like the problem is. If it is wrong they usually route it to the correct people.
