Hello,
The default installation page was not visible from the internet even though http://localhost showed it, and internet connection to other sites worked. The default installation page was also visible from within the LAN if I connected it to my laptop via a hub. I used Window XP Pro and already disabled the internal firewall. No router. I tried a few ports different from 80, and all worked as supposed to locally but not on the internet. My ISP said they didnt block any ports. Could someone help me?

"localhost" means the computer you're sitting in front of, not the one you want to talk to. Try http://123.456.789.123 (using the server's IP address in place of my funny numbers).

I tried http://localhost, http://127.0.0.1 and http://x.x.x (my ISP issued IP) and they all worked on the computer running the server. http://x.x.x (same ISP issued IP) also worked when I tried it from another computer connected to the server.

Yup. 127.0.0.1 is the standard IP address for localhost. So it, too refers to the machine that you're sitting in front of.
