intranet xampp, can see admin page, but not local (solved)

Postby dugal » 07. October 2008 14:37

I have installed xampp for my school to use as an intranet. I have also installed wordpress on that system. It works fine on local computer.


Now, I can see the XAMPP home page from other computers, but can't find any of the folders located in the XAMPP/htdocs folder?

Is this possible or am I missing something compeletly?

clab30 is the host computer name and 192.168.22.47 is ip address

i have tried to go to http://clab30/wordpress/index.php

and

http://192.168.22.47/wordpress/index.php

and

http://192.168.22.47/xampp/wordpress/index.php

Any suggestions?

Sure, the error message from the browser is missing...

BTW:
It works fine on local computer.

There is only one difference between local and remote access:
Replace the word "localhost" in the URI with the name or IP from the pc.

Thanks for looking, I solved it. I needed to change the wordpress settings for it's url from localhost to the computers name.

I appreciate anyone who took the time to read this plea for help.
