Pidora httpd unreachable

I have installed my Raspberry PI yesterday, and found out that loads of the Fedora questions matched my Pidora questions, so I decided to drop my question here as well.

I have Httpd, PHP and MySQL running on my Pidora server, and yesterday i was able to reach it over LAN, WAN and even through my DNS settings on my URL. I plugged the power out of it over night because I don't want to run a data center, just play with my server, and fired it up again this morning.

I didn't check if my httpd starts at boot, but I have started it manually as well. Launched my MySQL (not necessary but I was hoping that would solve my problem).

HTTPD is working, according to my HTTPD status

Jun 20 14:54:40 raspi.local systemd[1]: Started The Apache HTTP Server.

However, I cant reach it by going to its IP ( in my browser, I can reach the SSH (same IP other port). The port settings have not changed over night, so everything should just be working (and locally I don't think port settings matter at all, it worked before forwarding from my LAN network).

What can i do to test what's wrong or to make it work? Thanks.

In the cases of complicated and often changing setup it's good to document everything you do. Hard to guess what went wrong here, the first thing I would try is systemctl stop firewalld.service

"AH00558: httpd: Could not reliably" is also a hint ...

I have figured out the problem, it was indeed the firewalld. Thanks for the comment on that mistake. I did not solve it completely but made a temporary change by removing firewalld and using iptables with the allowance of port 80.

I also know the warning/error message is about a server name, that has something to do with dns. It was not necessary to be solved, but i did by changing the httpd.conf file and set my server dns in there.

Thanks all!
