How can other people on network view my site on XAMPP?

Postby texrag » 28. September 2009 20:00

Hi,

I have XAMPP installed on my local computer (Windows XP) and have created a website on it. I want other people on our network (LAN) to be able to view the website. Is there a way to allow them to view it by sharing my drive? Or can someone point me to a tutorial that would allow other people to view the site? Thanks

Hi,

Thanks! I tried that and people are able to view just the text version of the web but no images and whenever they navigate away from the homepage, they get an error since the website is set to http://www.example.com.

Hi,

I figured it out. I have zencart on my local drive and the way to have everyone view/test the site is to change the http servers on the configure file for both admin and includes file to your IP address. Now they are able to view, navigate and test it!

Thanks for the tip!
