Support » Localhost Installs » local install broken css and wp-admin on network

  • I have a local install of WordPress 3.3.1 running on Apache from a Red Hat Linux server. On the localhost WordPress loads and acts as is should. However when I connect to it from another machine on my network the css does not load and I cannot access wp-admin.

    Let me guess – you used localhost or 127.0.0.0 as your site urls? Every machine thinks that it is localhost/127.0.0.0.

    Thank you for your response. I did not use the local host as the sites url. I assigned it an internal IP and set it as static. I used virtual host to set the directory path.

    Not sure why this was marked resolved or by whom but… ok. The one answer did not address the issue, I simply thanked esmi for responding.

    I am running into the same problem. I have a fresh install of wamp on Windows XP and a fresh install of WordPress. When I view the site from the computer (http://localhost/wordpress) the default theme looks fine. When I try viewing the website from another machine on the network (http://wiki/wordpress) I get a site that is broken (css not working, images broken, etc).

    Any suggestions?

    I posted this question on the wamp server support forums and got an immediate answer:

    Basic answer- In your WordPress settings, you need to put in the machine’s ip address for the Site Address and the site address instead of localhost.

    Hope this helps!

    Wait…. going back and reading esmi’s response, thats the same solution proposed up top… so maybe thats not an appropriate solution for you. Sorry to hi jack your thread
