NOTE**

I'm not trying to access the XAMPP pages or any of that data remotely..

I've put a subdirectory in the HTDOCS directory and called it "testsite" with a few PHP, HTML, etc. pages and files.

I'm trying to access the page via "http://remotehostname.foo.bar/testsite/pagename.php", rather than via localhost.
