Can port forward to some guests, not others (?)

Oct 20, 2023

I don't post on forums often (maybe three times in my entire life) so forgive me if I get something wrong here, but

I'm trying to host a website from my home network. I have a turnkey Linux LAMP container installed and running. The server works great, but is only accessible on my local network.

Port forwarding to the IP of the container does not work. I'm able to do it in the router, but incoming connections from outside the network always time out.

I have a different container for a minecraft server that does work when forwarded this way. I also have a Debian VM that I was also able to port forward to.

I tried installing another copy of the template I used for my minecraft server, and was unable to port forward to that new container. So it doesn't appear that this is an issue with the Turnkey Linux template.

I've also tried multiple different ports, none of which appear to work. I don't think this is an Apache issue since SSH also fails to connect with the appropriate port forwarded.

I'm not sure what configuration info would be helpful, but please let me know and I'll get it ASAP.

Any help at all would be legendary. I've come to the absolute end of my troubleshooting abilities.
