I am looking for help to view my dev server from my other network computer. Currently I can only see my test sites on the local machine they reside on.
I had originally setup a dev Apache server on my old XP machine using XAMPP. It worked fine, and I could view the dev sites on my network via my primary Vista machine. However, I was unable to transfer files directly to the dev server due to installing it in the wrong (default) directory.
I uninstalled and reinstalled the server (using XAMPP again) into the proper directory. I can now transfer files directly to my dev server and I can see the directory on my network. The dev websites work fine on my XP machine. However, I am now unable to view the websites from my Vista machine.
I have tried the IP of the XP machine, but I get an "Unable to connect" error message. I obviously assume that not being able to find the dev server is due to changing the directory location of my dev server.... Perhaps my Vista machine is still looking for the server in its old directory?
Someone suggested I had to change the Apache configuration to reflect the new directory, but I have no idea if that is indeed the case.
I am pretty green when it comes to server side stuff, so I'd be grateful for any help in this!
