I'm completely new to all of this. I have installed WordPress on a LAMP stack on a local computer (running centos). I can access WordPress locally through my machine's IP address, but how do I make it accessible over the internet?
I've been messing around with lots of settings and just can't get anywhere! On my router in port mapping, I have set public UDP and TCP ports 80 to link to private IP address 10.0.1.31 and private UDP and TCP ports 8080.
I've been trying all sorts of combinations in the router settings and also the wordpress home and wordpress site URL settings on the actual wordpress site which I can access locally.
I don't know where to go next. I want to buy a domain name soon but just want to access the site externally to make sure it all works before buying one.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
