Hi, there. I've built a website using XAMPP on my pc and I access it through localhost. Typically I use external web hosts to allow access to my sites. However, my current employer does not allow external sites. So now, I'm trying to figure out a way for people to be able to access the site within the network. I have done some research and I'm able to access xampp from other computers... but only if xampp is turned on. There is nothing super sensitive in this project so security is not the biggest concern except for any type of external access which I don't think is possible outside the network.
My question is how do I get the site to be able to be accessed 24 hours a day, so I do not need to turn apache on and have my computer running in order for people to access the site? Do I need to load apache up on to a network drive or can I just leave it on my C: drive?
I appreciate any help I can get, thanks in advance.
