I've setup XAMPP on a Windows server because I want to use Joomla, and my understanding is that Joomla works best with Apache.
However, I'm not a programmer and don't really know what I'm doing. I followed the step-by-step instructions for installing XAMPP and that was successful. Then I downloaded and installed Joomla and entered my site content.
I can see my site using http://localhost, and http://127.0.0.1, and also http://mydomainname.com FROM THE COMPUTER THAT IT'S SET UP ON.
However, I can NOT see it from any other computer within my LAN using the domain name, which of course is my goal.
This is a company Intranet and is (or should be) viewable from only inside our network.
IIS is disabled, XAMPP is running so far as I can tell.
I probably shouldn't be using this software since I know so little about it, but I'm thinking that if I can just get through the setup, it will function well going forward because it's not accessible from the 'outside' so I feel like it's pretty safe.
Can anyone point me in the right direction, of what I'm doing wrong? (Please?) I feel like it's probably some simple fix that I'm overlooking, but after struggling with it for several days now and searching the Internet for a solution, I haven't found one. I can't find anyone with exactly the same issue as me.
Thanks in advance for any light anyone can shed on this for me!
