Remote Access on a Network

Postby Hungry Horace » 18. May 2017 05:55

Hi, I am very new to Xammp so please forgive me if I omit any crucial info, please ask and I will supply it.

Firstly let me explain briefly how the current setup is.

I have Xampp 5.6.30 setup on a computer running windows 10 on a local network.
I have setup a database and installed a version 1.10 of OS Ticket. This is running perfectly and it can be accessed via other computers on the network by both using the address 10.10.20.62/osticket or a url osticket/osticket. I believe the 10.10.20.62 is just being masked by the osticket url)
I am having no issues with this.

I have now made a second database for wordpress called wordpress. I have installed wordpress in this and it is running perfectly on the local machine where Xampp is installed. I can access it form the local machine via localhost/wordpress or via 10.10.20.62/wordpress

The issue now is that it couldn't be accessed from other computers on the network, it would just throw up a page not found message. I went into the wordpress settings and changed the url access to osticket/wordpress.
The wordpress site can now be accessed from other computers in the network but it is terribly slow and all formatting is gone, it looks like it is being run in a form of safe mode, and any images are not on the page.

I am assuming it is either a setting in Xampp I have setup incorrectly or something in the Wordpress setup. However I thought I would start in the Xampp forum as Wordpress is functioning correctly on the host computer and I am guessing the issue lies with an Xampp setting.

Again I apologise if I have omitted any crucial information and any help given is greatly appreciated.

Thank you
Hungry Horace

Most likely how you set up Wordpress. If it defaulted to "localhost" when you setup, that means look internally for each machine that tries to access it. Instead, you will need to configure Wordpress to use your network IP.

try this if u are using localhost for development.

in command line execute the below 2 commands. Make sure php.exe is in your environment path.

# cd C:\xampp\htdocs\Magento
# php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy
