Xampp on a local network

Postby smdstudios » 01. September 2005 21:21

I was thinking about setting up a dedicated computer just to run XAMPP in my office so I can learn PHP... How should I be able to access my XAMPP computer via my development computer via browser to test scripts?

Is it as simple as still using localhost or does that XAMPP box have a ip number..

TIA
Neil

I use Xampp for the same purpose on my LAN. If you are developing on the same pc then just use local host.

On a related issue I have been trying in vain to connect to the xampp sql db from dreamweaver mx on a separate pc on the lan but can't seem to do it. Can someone tell me if I need to change a setting or something to allow a remote connection to the sql DB.

Thanks

In that case every pc on the network has a name, you should use that name instead of local host. Only I cant get it to work.

So.. I assigned every pc a fixed ip address and used that....

but that didnt work either. :?

Not good...I guess I'll just install it on my work computer.

I would like to lauch a local web server(Xampp) within my LAN. Do I need to publish that server(Xampp) in local DNS server. Please point me out.

P.S/
I would like to access that server(Xampp) using www.mywebserver.com.
Possibility is beyond your imagination
