I'm sure this is somthing that has been answered before, but I have not been able to locate it in my searches.
I am running xampp on box1 on my local network. For fun, I installed copies of joomla, wordpress, and other software just to play with it. They all run wonderfully on box1 either by http://localhost/whatever
The problem occurs when I visit those same instances from box2 on my network. If I go to box2 and type in http://box1/whatever
i get the site without any styling whatsoever. All of the CSS styling or formats are missing. I see the content, say, from my wordpress install and see the "Hello World" post, it just doesn't have the template style. Same with joomla.
In contrast, if I type http://box1
I do see the xampp page with the logo and colors.
Any suggestions on what the issue might be?
