First of all the technical details:

  • OrangePi Zero (512Mb)
  • Debian for Orange Pi
  • Apache2
  • PHP5
  • Wordpress

I have at home an OrangePi and I installed a WordPress on it. I registered a DNS name (exlample.ddns.net) on noip.com.

I used the following guide to the installation:

After the installation, the blog site is at home reachable and manageable, but from outside can't reachable (It try reach my private address): So I modified the site & home URL in WordPress settings. After that I can reach the site from outside with the DNS name properly, but I cannot reach the blog site from home (only from outside).

Do you have any idea on this issue?

  • What hostname did you set up in apache? What was the settings in site & homeurl, and what did you change it to? – janh Jan 20 '18 at 12:52
  • the site and home url were: private ip – user135225 Jan 20 '18 at 17:31
  • now: example.ddns.net in apache I didn't modified any settings. – user135225 Jan 20 '18 at 17:33
  • How about adding example.ddns.net to your hosts file with the private IP? – janh Jan 20 '18 at 17:48
  • It's done, but the situation is constant :/ – user135225 Jan 20 '18 at 17:55

The problem has been resolved. I added the DNS name and the IP-Address of the Server to the host file of my PC. So I can reach my website from the outside and from my private LAN also.
