permalink and xampp

Postby mugz » 30. March 2016 12:07

Hello I recently put up a website and got faced with an interesting issue. My website still mostly identifies as localhost even after I set my godaddy domain to point to my IP. so for example ( https://gyazo.com/5e4a85637b33762cebc1551883d7143e ) this is what my permalinks look like. and if i make a new page the beginning of my permalink still say localhost instead of my .info address. because of this other people cant access those pages. Is there anyway i can set my website to fully identify by my domain info so in my permalink for example it would say http://example.com instead of http://localhost. This is an example of a page permalink http://localhost/heechang/, as it is only i can access it but no one else can. I would like it to say http://example.com/heechang/. im running xampp on windows 10.

Disclaimer: I recommend not putting your XAMPP site online without taking extra security precautions and configuration changes.

Did you edit your apache\conf\extras\httpd-vhosts.conf file?

Hi,

There is only one recommandation: XAMPP is not meant for live or public accessible environments.
If you want to go live with your webserver stack, search for a stack that is meant for production environments like EasyPHP Webserver (NOT Devserver)

best wishes,

I'm having a hard time finding a guide for easyphp webserver, so I guess I'm sticking with xampp. Although it isn't meant for live hosting is there anyway to change my localhost issue or its stuck that way?

There are always way to achieve this or that. Your issue is an application issue, so search for a migration tutorial for your specific application.
This is not an issue XAMPP can solve for you.

And again (last warning): If you use XAMPP in a public accessable environment, your application and data is not safe. There are ways to hijack public accessable xampp installations, which can result in data loss, integrating your server to a botnet to act as spam or DOS bot, etc.
There are other ways for unexperienced users to host a php application online like renting webspace.
