I have installed a BT device on my PC, & I'm connecting my mobile to my PC successfully, but I want to setup my PC & mobile in a such way that my PC will act as http & database server (Apace, Mysql) and my mobile as client.

I've got wamp installed & configured on PC, but I don't know how to view localhost on my mobile's browser (i.e. Whenever I'm trying to open http://localhost/ or it is trying to search on internet not the intranet).

Is it possible to view/browse local http server from mobile?

localhost/ is always the local host, i.e. the device you're trying to open the URL on. localhost on your PC is your PC, localhost on your phone is your phone.

If you want to connect to your PC from your phone, use the PC's IP address.
