XAMPP and browser test sites

Postby thefuzmixman » 19. December 2009 14:42

Hey guys,

I'm wondering how i can get browser test sites (like Adobe's browser lab or Browsershots etc.) to recognize my http://localhost/xxx url as a "valid" url in order to do some compatibility tests.

Is this possible? Thanks!

http://localhost is only available from the PC that XAMPP is installed on not from any outside source via you ISP's IP.

Instead of "localhost" you need to apply your WAN IP (which is assigned by your local provider), for example http://123.123.123.123/xxx (replace 123.123.123.123 by your IP).

If you are connected via a router, you have also to activate a Port Forwarding of Port 80 to your Xampp PC (i.e. a LAN IP like 192.168.1.5), because the WAN IP points to your router (instead of your PC), therefore all requests coming on Port 80 (the standard Port of HTTP) have to be routed to your server.
