Postby Lucasuk » 19. May 2016 10:06

Hi There

I have installed XAMPP 5.6.21 and have Apache with MySQL running. I have then put wordpress on and this is also running.
I now want to be able to see this URL from another pc on the same network but I cant for the life of me get it to work.
Just get the page cannot be displayed. I have tried the wordpress and XMAPP welcome page. Wokrs fine locally to the pc i installed it on.

What am i missing.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Cheers

Hi,

Without knowing anything about your working and not working URLs nobody will be able to help you.
If you describe an error be as detailed as possible. Anything could be helpful.

Best wishes,
Altrea

Sorry will try and give some more details.

I have Xampp and wordpress installed on a local server 2008 and it works fine using the localhost
If I then go to a PC sitting on the same subnet and put the http:// then the ip or name of the server if just get page cannot be displayed.

This Page cant be displayed.

This is trying http://name of server/wordpress or htpp://names of server/dashboard

I have also tried to edit the wp-config file and change the localhost to the server name and that works locally on the server but not on the lan.

Hi Nobbie.

Yes just found the problem with port 80 being blocked. So put the firewall rule in and its now working. :)

if you use Windows OS , You have to open port http (Port 80) in your windows firewall
