Dear altrea

**********thank you for this new idea***********
I just typed https://www.whatismybrowser.com/detect/what-is-my-local-ip-address
(sorry I'm too n00b to know how to do else) :oops:

and YES it says that it is now something else !!!!

so I tried it and I think I first got a CONNECTION_REFUSED error
but then it is redirecting me to the previous link

I guess I need to change the settings somewhere but where? in Xampp? :oops:

Okay it's working!

Thank you very much @Altrea you really identified the problem and opened a lot of doors of resolution!!!!
:P :P :P

I could figure out how to access the site, I added 2 lines in wordpress.
https://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_The_Site_URL

I know it's not of your concern..
The thing is, I think that all my links in the database are pointing the old IP
so when I tried to access my homepage with the new IP I got an error404 page (but with the design of my site, the menu and all)

I googled to see how it should be done but I am not finding a proper solution to this problem.
Is there anything to do in XAMPP for that matter?

OR do you think I can get the old local IP back in any way?!!

What happens if you enter

Code: Select all
ping 192.168.0.47


in a DOS Box (cmd.exe) of your Xampp Server and/or on any Client PC in your LAN?
What is the output of the command "ipconfig" on your Xampp Server?

No, but first of all proceed to the WordPress forum and tell them, they are idiots, as this wasnt a Xampp issue! But the people in WordPress forum are always that stupid.

Of course, in the Windows Network Setup you can open the Adapter Dialog for that LAN/WLAN node (i dont know, if you have a LAN or a WLAN connected) and change the settings for IPv4 from DHCP (automatic) to manual and apply exactly that IP. You also have to apply the subnet mask, which should be 255.255.255.0 and a gateway, the gateway should be the address of your router (i.e. 192.168.0.1). And finally provide the same IP 192.168.0.1 for a DNS Server. Then reconnect your PC to the router.

when I do the ping command,
I get "can't join host"
I'm translating from french this message
Code: Select all
# ping 192.168.0.47

Réponse de 192.168.0.18 : Impossible de joindre l'hôte de destination.

Statistiques Ping pour 192.168.0.47:
    Paquets : envoyés = 4, reçus = 4, perdus = 0 (perte 0%),


when I do the IPconfig command, yes I get the new IP which is 0.18 :

Code: Select all
# ipconfig

That means, your "new" IP is 192.168.0.18.

If you follow my previous advice, you can get back the old IP. If you have difficulties to setup your Windows Network Settings, there should be an alternative option to retrieve the old IP. Most routers (I dont know your router) have an admin menu which allows to apply static IPs to certain LAN PCs. You may try to find out, if your router also has this option.

(it took some time because the router IP was different and I took time to figure out)
