Accessing localhost from the internet (symbolic link)

Postby claus_01 » 30. June 2020 13:37

Hi all,

I have installed XAMPP for Linux 7.4.6 on my PC. Additionally, I installed a WordPress blog, which I want to be accessible from the internet (for security reasons only to a few people). Ok. I opened a port on my router & am now able to access the /dashboard directory, but not /wordpress. My brother-in-law gave me the advice to create a symbolic link 'ln -s dashboard wordpress', but I'm only getting a link that points to the directory /dashboard (wordpress -> dashboard). How can I reverse the direction of the link (dashboard -> wordpress)?

TIA,

Claus

> mkdir wordpress

Where is this directory wordpress located? My WordPress installation is in /opt/lampp/htdocs/wordpress.

>ln -s dashboard wordpress

Where is dashboard and wordpress located? Of course all commands are related to htdocs folder.
