Installing APACHE, PHP and MYSQL in Windows XP environment

P: 1
Hello there,

I'm want install Apache, PHP and MYSQL for my client server environment. My network is only LAN, no internet, just for internal use only. i have 3 concurrent users, including Web application server (apache), that will access the website.

My question is:
1) What should I put for my network domain and server name??? if i put localdomain and localhost, then if i run the web server service, do my other concurrent users can access my website ( eg: index.php). How do they access to my website? from my server pc, i can used http://localhost/index.php or http://127.0.0.1/index.php to access this website, but how did my workgroup to access this website??? what their url address??

Please give me an idea. Thanks.

Use http://127.0.0.1/index.php as localhost is specific to your machine, have the "same setup" where i have a laptop and a dev server.

Also in your appache httpd.conf file you will need to grant access to your webservers document root to other users, e.g

#
# This should be changed to whatever you set DocumentRoot to.
#
<Directory "X:/blah">

#
# Possible values for the Options directive are "None", "All",
# or any combination of:
# Indexes Includes FollowSymLinks SymLinksifOwnerMatch ExecCGI MultiViews
#
# Note that "MultiViews" must be named *explicitly* --- "Options All"
# doesn't give it to you.
#
# The Options directive is both complicated and important. Please see
# http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/mod/core.html#options
# for more information.
#
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks Includes


#
# AllowOverride controls what directives may be placed in .htaccess files.
# It can be "All", "None", or any combination of the keywords:
# Options FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
#
AllowOverride All

#
# Controls who can get stuff from this server.
#
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

</Directory>


"Allow from" can be ip address specific

Hope this helps
