  • Did you install the site using “loclhost” in your wordpress URLs?

    yes I did, its almost like there is a folder that has the wrong permissions set

    No, it’s simpler than that. If you use localhost in the URls, it will only work properly on the machine it’s installed on. Every machine is “localhost” or 127.0.0.1.

    Install WordPress using the static internal ip address of the server it’s hosted on and you should be able to access it from other machines on your own LAN.
