    Iv got it running fine on on my loft server, but of course I cant access my blog from my lan.


    This guy managed to get it working, but Im not having so much success. Can anyone point me in the right direction. When I put the url ( in, my routers homepage pops up as it should. Any way to change this?

    Im running ubuntu btw

    thanks in advance, ben

    The easiest way to do this is to add your domain name and the local ip of your server to your hosts file of your home machines. Or if you want to get really adventurous set up a dns server and point the domain to the local ip.

    Ok, I thought it was something like that

    Could you point me in the right direction, I tried something like the guy in the linked post had done, to no avail.
