Localhost over my network

Problems with the Windows version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.

Localhost over my network

Postby snobba » 27. June 2004 01:30

I have installed XAMPP on my other computer through the network and I have some questions about this:

#1. Is it alright to install to a harddrive on the network? I mean, my php.ini file and stuff gets on my workstation c:/..But it seams to work because it is starting php and mysql.

#2 And now to the main problem! How do I reach the localhost through a network. Now it is looking locally. I do not use a proxy server just a NAT one. Can I do something like HTTP://computername/localhost or something???

Thankful for any help I could get in this matter!

no, because localhost is 127.0.0.1 or the IP of ur PC.
localhost is not routet.
If u type this in ur Browser "HTTP://computername" or the IP of the Computer where the HTTP Server runs then u get the "start page" of this HTTP Server.

Thanks!

So this means that I have to install XAMPP from the servercomputer? And not through the network like I have it now?

Because now it does not work with http://ipnumber or computername where the XAMPP are located. My mozilla says: 'The conncetion was refuse while connecting to 'my servers ip number''

Yes sir...But it should be totally open for the other computer..

But I maybe should try to install from the server-computer instead...

Yeah, I don't know about it and tutorial is too poor.
So, I changed httpd.conf

ServerName : www.myURL.com
Listen : 80
and other files in install + xampp
