One could forge a request with Host header set to 'example.com' and connect to localhost, thus the question.

If the header value is the thing you're looking for: it is contained in request.host.

I have a home server set up with a couple of things going on. Here is the weird thing that I can't figure out. I can access everything just fine from an INTERNET connection external to my LAN using my domain name, let's say "domain.com". So, if I type into my browser on my LAN "www.domain.com", it searches without actually finding it's destination giving up after a period of time saying the server cannot be found (usually an error 408).
But, if I type www.domain.com on my mobile phone browser using my data connection (not on the LAN), it connects without a hitch and everything functions fine. I have done this set up before at a different home, but since I moved, I have come across this problem and either don't remember having this happen before or don't remember what I did to resolve it. Also, I changed ISP and that seemed to be the beginning of the problem. I set up my port forwards and checked my firewalls on the router. I looked on google and couldn't find anything specific to my problem. Everything I have read in the user documentation for apache seems to be set up correctly. I guess my question is what do I not know that I should know to be looking for. :-/
Could some one direct me as to what I should look for?

I have a main domain (of course) and a sub domain. I'm really trying to steer my personal stuff away from the main one and have focused all of my php development to the sub-domain.

Lately I noticed that google catalogs my sub-domain site stuff under the main domain name and the links that come up lead to that domain name with the path that takes the user to the sub-domain's home folder and beyond.

Is there something that php (apache??) can do to control either google's robots or the user's view (url) so that it appears as a page of my sub-domain?

I'm trying to use D3, a javascript data visualization library in my rails app. The problem is that I can't figure out where to put the d3.js source and my .json data so that rails will serve it.

My problem is in the way d3 issues a GET request when it looks for my json and d3.js files.

Things I tried:- setting up a static pages folder that is served with high_voltage gem. This didn't work for me as I couldn't get around my application layout so it wrapped my js and json in html. I think this is why this didn't work.- putting the files to be served in the public folder. This didn't work because it couldn't find the routes for the public folder. I did turn on config.serve_static_assets in the production enviroment config file.
I feel like this question should have a simple answer as everything works perfectly if I put my html, json and d3.js files into a folder and start a simple python http server in that folder. I think my problem is in my understanding of the way rails is trying to serve things.
