Support » Fixing WordPress » remote computer can’t see WP site running on my local webserver

  • I have a WP site running on my local computer (Mac OSX) and Personal Web Sharing is on and the Apache server is working.

    When I try to access my site from a remote computer using the IP address, it is loading without the stylesheet. I think the <?php bloginfo(‘stylesheet_url’); ?> tag isn’t working (probably many bloginfo calls aren’t working) — It’s returning this kind of thing: ‘http://LauraS-computer.local/~LauraS/wordpress/…stylesheet.css’

    Can someone help me figure out how to see my site on a remote computer? I need to do some browser testing.

    Eventually I’ll need to migrate the entire thing up to a real webserver and that will no doubt come with a whole new set of surprises!!

    Thanks,
    LauraS.
