IP Conflict

Postby jamesjohnson88 » 12. May 2008 22:51

I've just set up my server using XAMPP and secured everything with passwords and whatnot. The problem is that when I enter my IP I get asked to log in to my router.

192.168.0.1 is my IP, what should I do so that I can start being able to link people to my site?

http://localhost/epicfx/test.html is my current tet page, if it helps at all.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Then that's not your ip (the ip from the pc XAMPP is running on), it's the ip of your router.

Where do I go from here then?

EDIT - My actual IP is 78.144.116.91

I still get asked to log into the router though when I visit that adress. :cry:

That's also the ip from your router (the wan ip).

The router ip you can only use from the internet. from your local net, you must use the real ip from the xampp pc.

This is what I get from running ipconfig.

IPv4 Adress: 192.168.0.2
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.0.1

When I go to that adress I just get asked to login and I then get taken to the xampp page. ( http://192.168.0.2/xampp/ )

Where do I go from here?

The XAMPP page is working?

So what's your problem?

Where do I go from here?

I don't know... that ("/xampp") are just some example pages. If you want see something other with "http://192.168.0.2/", you must write some html, php or perl scripte.

I have a test page that I made.

Its located xampp>htdocs>epicfx>test.html

I can access it from my PC but its only from using localhost.

I assume its something to do with setting a vhost but I can't seem to find any decent guides on doing so. Any tips?

Its located xampp>htdocs>epicfx>test.html

Thus the URI is "http://localhost/epicfx/test.html"?

I can access it from my PC but its only from using localhost.

Where are the other pcs located on which you are trying an access?

Yes, thats the URL.

Obviously the local host URL won't work outside of my home network. Essentially, I want to be able to host a website viewable to the public.

Then you must use a service like DynDNS (or use the WAN ip of your router, if this one is static) and configure a port-forwarding in your router.

Thanks for the help. I'll try the DynDNS thing first. Will I still need to forward the ports from my router? Or is it an either/either scenario?
