Support » Installing WordPress » homegrown weblog server

  • Resolved helwoe


    Hey all, I hope someone can help me along. My goal is to run wordpress on a server running win2003 from my home exclusively for family members (about 10) across the internet, so we can “blog” about our week, day etcetera. I chose not to use a service because it will be mostly private, something I will work on later. The server IP is The hostname is dtsvr.Currently I have XAMPP running fine on the server. WordPress and my blog page, Fam-J was working fine on the server side until unexplicably it quit. Now on the server side when I load(http://localhost/wordpress/) I get the Fam-J page but the presentation is gone with just plain text. When a PC on the lan tries to load the server IP( or (http://dtsvr/wordpress) I only get the XAMPP homepage ( and not Fam-J. Seems like the default page is messed up?!? When I look at the XAMMP control panel it shows both Apache and MySQL as running. I’m wondering what needs to be done to get to the Fam-J page. I’m studying network administration so I have a pretty good idea about how things work but clueless with whats going on here. I’m thinking about re-installing my win2003 server and starting fresh. I’ve spent an enormous amount of time on this already and thinking about canning it.. appreciate some constructive hints or help.

    Cheers, Helwoe!

  • After taking another look today I realized that I made a change in the Options. I had changed http://localhost/wordpress to
    Thats what I like about binary, on or off. No equivication!
    So now I can log in from both server side and PC on the lan. I hope this helps anyone with a similar problem because I haven’t found anything that came close. When I finish setting this up on the internet I’ll follow up.
