    Hello! So i have couch potato working successfully on port 5050, however I installed apache web service so that I can access couch potato externally

    localhost will redirect me to my xampp server but I want it to redirect to localhost:5050, how would i configure this in my logs?

    im not sure if that will work, my couchpotato server runs from localhost:5050, if there's someone with apache experience can maybe verify this for me on how to make it listen on this port that would be great

    If you have couchpotato running already on 5050, you don't need Apache. It's already running.

    Open up port 5050 on your router and forward it to your internal IP address on the computer hosting the service, then find out what your external IP is (ipchicken.com), and just go to externalIPaddress:5050 once it's open.

    Does it work when you're actually on the PC and you just put your local ip address in like
    http://192.168.1.10:5050

    If that works, what happens if you try it from another pc on the same network?

    I got it working -, I was opening up the ports in the wrong port forwarding - there were two port forwarding options on my router and i was using the single when I should've been using the multiple range forward
