I am trying to set up an internal wiki site for my company. Product info, specs that sort of thing. I have downloaded and installed WAMP Server 2.2 (Apache 2.2.22 MySQL 5.5.24 PHP 5.3.13) as well as the newest version of the mediawiki software on my Windows XP SP3 machine. Installation went fine. I now have the directory c:\wamp\www\fpswiki and i can access the wiki site through:
http://localhost/fpswiki http://computername/fpswiki http://computerip/fpswiki
but only from the server machine on which WAMP Server and Mediawiki are installed.
I have the firewall off and port 80 open (redundant i think) on both the server and the computer I'm using to test.
I have also tried changing the allow statements in the apache configuration file httpd.conf. I have tried:
<Directory /> Options FollowSymLinks AllowOverride None Order deny,allow Deny from all Allow from all </Directory>
<Directory /> Options FollowSymLinks AllowOverride None Order deny,allow Deny from all Allow from 192.168.0.0 </Directory>
Neither of which worked. On the test computer I don't get an error message, just "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" and a Diagnose button that does nothing useful when pressed.
What I can see from the test computer are .php files in the www folder. I can also get to the WAMP Server splash screen through the browser on the test computer by typing in the server computer name or ip. Most interestingly (I think anyway) is that I can get all the info from the wiki page in an unformatted style by going to:
it just pops up in the browser.
Ive been reading about this for 3 days and have also gotten this far using XAMPP and EasyPHP. My WAMP Server is in online mode and the icon is green.
I have no need to broadcast this to the outside internet. I only want it to be accessible to computers on our network as it will be used for internal employee reference only.
