hmm weird error with configuring server on localhost
so i set up php, mysql, and apache on my localhost and it works great. I type in localhost/path./to/my/file and it takes me there, but when i type in my ip address it takes me to configuration for my computers router. Anyway around this?
go to start >> run and type "inetmgr"....then when you get in there, click on your localhost and then on websites....a ip address should be configured and that'll be the one you should use.....good luck!
You need to configure your router to send requests on port 80 to your computer's local ip address and change the router pass so that people from remote places cant getin on say port 81 which is not forwarded. This is not a server problem but a router problem. If you type in your local ip it should still work and if you type in that 127.0.0.1 (ip of local host) it should work too.
