FQDN - How to setup on a LAN

Postby comtek » 14. July 2004 15:34

I have setup Xampp on a 2000 server on a LAN. It is not a public site, only an "in-house" setup. I am setting up a "Help Center Live" site for trouble tickets. I was told that I needed a FQDN(Fully Qualified Domain Name) in the config in order for it to work right. I am currently using "//2000server/hcl" in my browsers, which goes to \\2000server\www\xampp\htdocs\hcl, to connect to my server. Is there anyway to set it up as a dot Com to satify the FQDN requirement? Thanks

Open up your hosts file and add in a ip number and the domain name

E.g.

xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx Localhost
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx supportticket.com

Make sure you set up virtual hosting for the .com and your away

This is wrong. You use a Windows share and not your webserver.

To access the webserver you must use:
http://server-ip/hcl

You can use your server ip as FQDN.

If you really have a windows 2k server, you can activate the DNS service and use the server name:
http://server-name/hcl
