Listening on port 80 by default.

Tried this in httpd.conf, which worked somewhat:

<Directory />
  Options FollowSymLinks
  AllowOverride None
  Order allow,deny
  Allow from all

This allows other computers on my LAN to access my WAMP server via my computer’s IP address, however what I’m trying to share is a WordPress site in development, and since everything in my WordPress install already uses localhost/xxx as its base URL, for all its assets, when accessed by others by my IP address, my localhost isn't their localhost, and it appears completely unstyled, bare HTML.

How can I remedy this? That does me no good. Would setting up a Virtual Host do the trick?

Im not 100% sure, was some time ago, but if you set up a fixed IP adress for your PC and then CHANGE the entries in the wp options table FROM localhost TO your fixed ip address that should probably help – edelwater Feb 7 '14 at 22:49
