Webpage not working.

Postby Smackie » 10. August 2008 17:08

I am running XAMPP 1.6.7 and i run it on both Windows XP and Windows Vista now when I start my computer up in Windows XP I can access my site by typing in my ip (or my site url which i set up for it). but when i restart my computer and come into Windows Vista i can access it using http://localhost/ but i can't use my IP nor my URL.. and I'm scratching my head at this :?:

Thank you

Go to your hosts file, usually located at
C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\dns
and add

127.0.0.1 yourwebsite.com


So if you can access your website from http://localhost you will also be able to access it using http://yourwebsite.com
Thinking is the hardest thing there is, which is the probable reason why so few engage in it.

I already knew that.. but thats not my problem.. my problem is i can type in http://myip( example: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx) and it doesn't show up.. it works just fine on my Windows XP (same version and same location same exact one) it will let me view it as https://myip( example: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx) and also as http://127.0.0.1 and also as http://localhost but not as just an http://myip( example: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx)..

but i spend most of my time now days on Windows Vista.. so i need to get the running.

try by configuring httpd.conf to make apache listen on your local IP
eg.
Listen 192.168.0.10:80

hope this works

still nothing :-\.. I usually figure out how to fix this stuff out on my own but this has me scratching my head.. It works just fine on Windows XP but not Vista.. when i installed the newest version alittle bit ago before i put this thread up it said something about vista and UAC but even tho i don't have it turned on (im using full Administrators account) but still nothing.. but i switched to regular user account and still nothing..

I been using Xampp for i would have to say around 4 or 5 years now and lovin it but this is the biggest problem i had with it..

I found out why it's not letting me view my site using my ip.. had a friend connect to ip and he said he sees what it should be showing so i knew that Windows Vista is blocking port 80 itself.. but trying to unblock it is harder the heck.. lol if anyone knows how to do this give me a shout please lol..
