Serve Pages to Local Clients

Postby Aww » 29. January 2010 21:22

Hi all,

I've got XAMPP up and running very nicely on my Kubuntu machine, which I'm using to develop websites. I have several sites that I can access through the browser, but I also need to access them on windows computers connected to my local area network. As an example, I have two sites- http://school1.local, and http://lawoffice.local.

I've been googling all over the place and I've tried several configurations, but nothing seems to work:

My httpd-vhosts.conf looks like this on my Kubuntu machine
Code: Select all
NameVirtualHost school1.local
NameVirtualHost lawoffice.local

   ServerName  localhost
   DocumentRoot /opt/lampp/htdocs

<VirtualHost school1.local>
   DocumentRoot /home/me/weblab/school1
   ServerName school1.local
   ServerAlias *.school1.local
   <Directory /home/me/weblab/school1>
      Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
      AllowOverride All
      Order allow,deny
      Allow from all

<VirtualHost lawoffice.local>
   DocumentRoot /home/me/weblab/lawoffice
   ServerName lawoffice.local
   ServerAlias *.lawoffice.local
   <Directory /home/me/weblab/lawoffice>
      Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
      AllowOverride All
      Order allow,deny
      Allow from all

... and my /etc/hosts file looks like this
Code: Select all localhost school1.local lawoffice.local

Now, on the windows computer, I've set the C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts. (my Kubuntu machine has a local IP address of
Code: Select all       localhost school1.local lawoffice.local

On my Kubuntu machine I can view any website I call up, but trying to browse the sites on the windows machine simply brings up the xampp start page. I need this to work so that I can test sites on different browsers without uploading to the ISP.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!
