XAMPP question
Is there a way to run xampp as a server in a network of 5 computers connected through LAN ? i.e. i can host the mybb on main server but in XAMPP, and all others connected pcs, can access it through localhost . what I mean is to, host a mybb on XAMPP in once pc and all other pcs can access it

RE: XAMPP question
So long as you have your firewall setup correctly, you should be able to access the xampp server by using the local IP for the computer running it. Of course, you'll have to make sure that the computer always uses the same IP - but most routers these days let you reserve a local IP for certain devices.

I install XAMPP on my computer, host page on my computer's htdocs, then how can I access that page from other computer ?

RE: XAMPP question
First thing is to work out your current local IP. To do that, simply follow this guide: http://www.designcodeexecute.com/2006/11...indows-xp/ - you might as well follow the part about setting a static local IP too.

All you then have to do is enter the IP you found using the above within another computer on the network's web browser and you should see the xampp welcome page Smile

Also, you may be able to access is by simply using http://COMPUTER_NAME where COMPUTER_NAME is your computer's name.

No, mass mailing is like a few hundred to a few thousand + mails per hour Smile
