  • shadow



    I am playing around with a database and design that I need to keep out of public view.

    As WP is so good at being crawled by Google, this makes the whole task a very difficult procedure.

    Is there any way I can keep the site from being viewed by others?

    I do not want to just block posts. I want to hide the whole site.

    Local install? I use XAMPP and it’s perfect for this.

    htaccess / htpasswd ?

    Email ?



    I wish I could but after trying more than once on an XP Pro system, I have all but given up. It seems there is some issue with IIS on Pro which makes it a complicated process.
    I wish I could do it locally though, it would sure save some time.

    Thanks 🙂



    As per the instructs from Podz I have had XAMPP running locally on XP Pro for a couple weeks with no problems.

    If someone could write up how to go about killing IIS on XP Pro so Xampp could run, that would be really great !

    Uninstall it? Control Panel -> Add Remove Programs -> Add Remove Windows Component -> IIS

    Disable it: Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Services, right click on IIS admin and click Stop from the context menu



    Or easyphp.

    Thanks !
    I’ll add it later to the xampp page 🙂
