Access site outside server (3 posts)

    I have configured my WP-site, and it works nicely on the server, but when I try to open the site on any client PC (only installed within LAN), the graphical interface is removed so that it is not showing right, and I can't access the admin page either.

    This is the server!
    This is the client...

    Can anyone help me with this? :)

    You cannot use localhost as part of your site url if you want to be able to access the site from other computers in your local network. Every computer defines itself as localhost. You need to use an internal domain name.

    Hi hatye,

    esmi is correct, you could share your IP but this is not recommended, it could have potential security concequences (if I am correct).
