I have WAMP server2 installed on my main machine (PC running Windows 7). I am using it to develop several websites and I want it to be available to the other machines on my local network through wireless. The other two computers are a Mac running OSX and a netbook PC running Ubuntu.
I don't even need access to MySQL from the other computers, I just want to be able to view the dev sites and use the CMS (add & change files via the web interface) that they are built on from the other machines.
Here is what I have done so far:
- Put the server online
- Changed the IP on the windows machine to static
- Configured windows firewall to allow all incoming Apache requests, as well as port 80 (TCP & UDP) and port 3306
- Uninstalled WAMP server which was running off an external drive and reinstalled it (and then added project folders and databases) on C:\
- Installed this Wamp server patch
- Manually configured the Apache httpd.conf to allow from the specific computer IPs (which are dynamic) as well as the default gateway.
- Turned windows firewall off completely
- Restarted all services after each change
After editing the httpd.conf file, I can access the main WAMP page from the browser on the other machines, but I cannot access the project folders, even when typing in the address manually (i.e. 192.168.x.x/project-name). It redirects to localhost/project-name and results in a page not found.
