How do I access XAMPP host from another PC on my network?

Postby celtic-fiddler » 01. July 2020 01:31

How do I install a website using XAMPP on a computer in my home network (inside a NAT), and access that site from another computer on my home network?

Or, in my case, I would like to install XAMPP 7.4.7 and a website on my Linux (Ubuntu 18.04.04 LTS) box, then access it from my Win10 box.

More than a month with no replies. I have to conclude one or more of the following is true
1) Nobody else has ever wanted to run XAMPP on an Ubuntu box and access that host from elsewhere on a local NAT network.
2) Nobody knows how to do this
3) There is something wrong with the way I posed the question.

Fortunately, I have some workarounds for running my tests. I have a domain that I'm not currently using for anything else, and I have hosting I can use for that. Perhaps less secure, and certainly less convenient than using XAMPP, but at least I can make some progress.
Sigh.

0 for 3 on that one. Most likely, no one that read it desired to respond.

Each computer on your network has an IP address. Set up your web server, and access it using the IP address (i.e. http://192.168.0.100/)
