Difference between http://localhost and http://xx.xxx.xxx.xx

Postby Erike20 » 08. October 2004 07:12

Ok, when I use http://localhost to access my server everything pops up as it should with the index.html that I have specified. Whenever I try to access my server from the outside by using my IP address I get redirected to splash.php with the English / Deutsch menu.

Localhost: directed to xampp/htdocs/index.html (Good)
IP address: directed to xampp/htdocs/xampp/splash.php (Not Good)

Also, whenever I use http://xx.xxx.xxx.xxx/index.html I get directed to splash.php even though index.html is in the correct directory

How can I get it so that my IP Address goes to the same directory as localhost?

Hope I am clear enough, thanks in advance.

Hmm...well, I think I found out my problem. It has nothing to do with any config file or file placement. Seems the problem was with the browser I am using. I use Firefox and was getting this problem, but when I tested it on Internet Explorer it works like a charm.

Thanks for the help anyways Kris
