local host on home network

Postby chuck_2012 » 30. April 2012 16:04

I have a small home network setup, 3 computers, connected thru a router, with xampp running on one of the computers. From another computer in my network how do i connect to the computer running xampp to see the webpage I am designing? This is my first post and my knowledge of xampp is limited. thx :D

Use the local IP address of the machine XAMPP is installed on.

i.e http://192.168.1.xx (or whatever)

Good Luck

Where are you putting your custom site? The folders under /xampp/htdocs/xampp are protected from remote access by default. You should still be able to put your custom site in /xampp/htdocs and modify the index.php to not redirect to the htdocs/xampp folder.
