Support » Installing WordPress » WP not showing outside the server

  • Resolved jugularbean


    Installed WP on this machine that acts as the server for a research org. Installation went fine. WP opens perfectly from the server, however from any other machine it doesn’t.

    This is the url

    As for the admin panel it’s not even accessible from any machine apart from the server.

    On the server I tested with the domain name itself, not localhost, so I dunno what the problem could be.

    The normal site, works fine, so it isn’t any sort of DNS problem as far as I can see.

    Any ideas?

    Huh! I think it’s working fine now. Must have been a delay before it reflected. Sorry folks.




    wants to go to localhost — check your url and home settings in the backend. theres no css either, thats why.



    Any idea how to change it from localhost?



    Do I have to change the hostname in wp-config.php?



    I think you have to give it an IP….



    Don’t say you don’t use localhost. This is from your site when trying to access the stylesheet:
    @import url( http://localhost/wordpress/wp-content/themes/cised/style.css );

    admin > Options > General > the 2 URI values!



    Ah yes, found that. However I can’t seem to change it from where I am right now, says that I need to enable sending referrers. Perhaps I’ll try from the server tomorrow.
