1. Do you have a permanent IP address? 
2. Do you have the DNS set up?
3. Do you use a firewall? If so, is port 80 open? - assigned from ISP - internal address

port 80 is open - just went to the advanced settings in my firewall and
opened up port 80.

1. Can you access the server locally?
2. Have you set up a phpinfo() page to see if PHP is running?
3. If PHP is running have you properly configured phpMyAdmin to see if it
connects to MySQL?
3. Can you get to MySQL using the tools provided with the installation?

If you can access the server locally can you access it across a network on
your side of the firewall? Someone mentioned that ISP's block port 80, have
you checked with concerning rules about this?
