WP is not reachabel from the LAN only Local

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have installed a WordPress every thing works fine as long i stay on the Server. I can use 127.0.0.1 or the Server IP 192.168.0.112 both show me the WordPress Start Page.

But if i Try the 192.168.0.112 from another Client in the LAN i allways get the Page "Cannot display the Page" "the answer takes to much time".

 

may anyone had a suggestion?

 

best regards

Ralf

Hello, I encountered the same problem while testing the Uniform Server 13.4.0 and the wordpress installation tutorial (http://www.uniformserver.com/ZeroXI_documentation/apps_wordpress.html).

 

It is not specific to Wordpress, but to external access to the apache server.

 

In case it may help someone, just follow the instructions in the .htaccess file (located in the root folder : www) : Comment next four lines to deactivate. (Allows external access)

Stop apache, edit the .htaccess file (just add a # at the beginning of each line), restart apache and external access will be granted.

It's not a problem, it's intended for this. In the default configuration, apache allow access only from localhost (127.0.0.1).
