Access To phpbb and other Apps From Web

Postby Gene Coleman » Wed Mar 26, 2014 11:56 am

I am having difficulty configuring access to my PHPBB bulletin board from the web. In simple terms, what settings need to be in place for EZ-Router, the server & cookie settings for PHPBB and the router port forwarding? Currently I am able to connect to my NAS via the web using the NAS port but only the pre-installed apps are accesible. I have successfully configured the Cloud Connect in order to get that far. For examples sake, let's say my Asustor Cloud URL is 'myboard.myasustor.com' and let's say my local IP for the NAS is 192.168.10.25. I need to know exactly what to do in order to access at least phpbb if nothing else. I have tried several different combinations for all the settings mentioned above but still cannot access phpbb from the web as will be needed when it is ready for user registration and use.

thx, Gene

Did you install php BB3? If yes, you should be able to connect to it by http://192.168.10.25/phpbb3/
You should be able to click "phpBB 3" icon in ADM to start it too.

However, I believe you should mean cloud connection. If your port forwarding opens port 80, you should be able to connect to your BB by http://myboard.myasustor.com/phpbb3/. If it's another port, you should use http://myboard.myasustor.com:port/phpbb3/

Yes I did install PHPBB and I can connect on my lan via my local IP 192.168.xx.xx. For cloud access, I have tried many combinations of port forwarding settings including the following:

Linksys E1000 - external port 80 to internal port 80
AS-602T - EZ Router Web Service 80 to 80

After making these port changes, I've tried to access from a seperate internet source but get a 504 error.

But it's not just PHPBB that I can't access via the cloud. For instance I can't access PhPMyAdmin or BigAce either. All preinstalled apps are accessible from the NAS port 8000 but all of the apps I've added are not.

This leads me to believe that maybe it's an NAS setting that needs to be corrected?

Ok, I'll recommend you to set to the other port number, rather than 80. A lot of routers/gateways will reserve those port numbers (under 1000). For example, you can set NAS's web server to 8180 (ADM -> Services -> Web Server). You should change the port setting of phpBB at the same time. Do 8180 port forward. It should work by http://myboard.myasustor.com:8180/phpbb3/. ;)

Thank you Orion! That was the key to the problem. I now have access to my bb from the web. :D
