[resolved] Access Localhost Install via IE (6 posts)

    I have done this in the past and with our current intranet using XAMPP, but now I am using WAMP something odd is occurring.

    I have the WAMP and WP installed on a server with a static IP. I changed the 2 settings within WP Settings:

    WordPress Address (URL) : http://localhost/intranet
    Site Address (URL) : http://localhost/intranet

    localhost was replaced by the IP of the server. When I try to access this address from any workstation, the page cannot be found. Again, the current setup is fine, but I want to move all to another server with a different IP.

    Any thoughts???

    I forgot to mention, only users within the network can access the intranet. So i do not need any information to allow the site to access via the www, just in our Windows environment.

    I wonder if you have settings in Apache's httpd.conf that are interfering. I have <VirtualHost> settings that mean I can't use or localhost to access other locally installed sites. I have to access them on (which is the same machine).

    the above was from WAMP Apache settings.

    This is from XAMPP Apache settings:

    <Directory />
    Options FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride None
    Order deny,allow
    Deny from all
