    Hi guys, i've been moving through the forums and web and i haven't found any information on my current situation.

    I've got a machine with wordpress using MS Web Matrix that I would like to make available to local network users, current address is http://localhost etc... The site is available on the machine and i'd like to publish it for the local network.

    I would be very appreciative if someone could point me in the right direction (this is my first time creating a website, but I work in an IT related field so im not totally lost.)

    Thank you!

    Change the urls to something other than localhost. See Changing_The_Site_URL.

    @shirshak: That doesn't have anything to do with the OP's question.
