[Solved]Using Xampp in an Intranet

Postby davidscavenir » 04. June 2010 14:56

I would like to use Xampp on an Intranet.
So I have to give access to the server for other computer. How is it possible to open this access ?
Of course this is not for a big use but to test little application for a dozen of customer.
I suppose that this is a common question but I have found the right post....
Best regards,

You got it all completely wrong; per default, all access is open. You need firewalls etc. to restrict access. If you dont use firewalls, no access is restricted, everything is open.

I agree with you : the page are open according to the security interface.
But it does not work when I try to connect from an another PC of my office by typing the IP of the PC where Xampp is installed (this is a Linux PC).
Where could be the problem (A few month ago, I have installed on a windows PC the programm Easyphp, and it works well...) ? Firewall on the Linux-PC ? Firewall on the other PC ? Problem with the routing on the intranet ?
Any ideas (sorry for the long dely in my reply)

I use Linux, it does not work when I try to connect from another PC in my home typing the IP address of the PC where is installed Xampp. May be their is a problem with your firewall that is installed in the PC Linux or other PC Firewall. Check the settings on routing Iintranet.

I am not sure to understand what I have to do with the firewall... Actually I think there are no firewall installed on my PC Linux server (the one with xampp)..
I am thinking about a modification : in the httpd.conf file, the nameserver is localhost. What happen if I put the IP adress of my computer instead of localhost. Is it stupid or is it dangerous ?

Simplify the work home, addressing XAMPP, a complete Apache, MySQL, PHP, Perl and battery that runs on Linux, Windows, Mac OS X and Solaris. XAMPP is not designed for deployment on a production server. Its purpose is simply to ensure that everything works, so it is very fragile. I have read in several places that you can not use XAMPP in production as it has many security flaws.

I know but to test I need two or three computer connected... And after that, I will choose an another solution of course.
