I used to use WAMP and it was great except that one day, WordPress stopped working…
So I switched to XAMPP and it’s great also, but I don’t know how to configure it to broadcast the server outside localhost [ useful for when you try to test your site from your laptop or ipad ] . In WAMP it was simple - just right click icon -> Make Online
I get this message when accessing the XAMPP computer by IP
Access forbidden! New XAMPP security concept: Access to the requested directory is only available from the local network. This setting can be configured in the file "httpd-xampp.conf". If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster. Error 403 192.168.1.117 7/22/2011 12:07:10 AM Apache/2.2.17 (Win32) mod_ssl/2.2.17 OpenSSL/0.9.8o PHP/5.3.4 mod_perl/2.0.4 Perl/v5.10.1
Obviously the address is correct - but there is some htdocs restritctions that occur… and I am not good at htdocs stuff ( any good tuts ? ) …
So any suggestions / XAMPP users ?
