limited access to the xampp server files

Postby samifox » 20. July 2010 21:23

Hi

I have xampp installed on windows xp and have wordpress installed in it. Im accessing the wordpress from other computers in my network using http://ip-addresss/wordpress.

Something really weird happening when the other computer on my network request the site, I can access the index file but all links are broken and even the attached css is not loading.

when pressing a link i get "Forbidden : you don't have permission"

In my httpd.conf I set:

Deny from all
Allow from (the ip of the other questing computers)

any idea?

Thanks
Shay

Ahhhhhhhhrrrrrgggggg - asked a billion times, answered a billion times. Always the same error.

You have been asked for a ServerName when installing WP. You entered "localhost" - and that is wrong if you intend to you use it differently from localhost. You must enter the LAN-IP of the server instead.
