Sharing Apache through wifi... how to?

Postby YanKleber » 21. May 2018 15:05


I just installed XAMPP onto my system (Windows 7) and couldn't believe how simple and easy was to get an Apache/MySQL/PHP system set! I am in love!


Now I am running into a small problem though. It was installed on my desktop computer but I need Apache shared to my whole wi-fi network then I can test my deployment with my mobiles (actually the main reason I installed it was to test iOS).

OK, on my computer browser I have full access to the htdocs stuff by just typing 'localhost'.

I tried it on my Android but it didn't work... I tried also and still no luck. In any way it says 'page not available'.

Any advice?

On your other devices instead of using localhost or you need to type in your LAN IP address of the computer xampp is running on.
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!
