Accessing xampp with ip address.

Hi guys,

I installed xampp on my machine, and everything works fine, no problems, got the new control panel [version 3.0], so all is good, except when I get my remote ip address, I can accesss my xampp, it asks me for username and password and I can access my xampp welcome page if you could call it that, I am just trying to access my htdocs directory through this method if you understand?? =),

In your htdocs directory is an index.php file which automatically will be executed if no filename is given in the url.

You have two alternatives:

first: give a filename in the url
http://localhost/test.php will execute the test.php page in your htdocs

second: delete or change the index.php file which includes a redirect.

Okay, awesome!

That works, I tried that last night but it didn't work, maybe something had to resolve, okay - can you please tell me how to setup filezilla for remote connections, what ip do you use, I can access it with localhost, but I wanna access it from another internet computer at work?,

Thanks,

Toby =)
