Start by reading the link I gave you.

Create a Virtual Host for both sites.

Then within the Virtual Host you can allow access from remote machines

Hi,

> wow it is like i am reading letters from mars

With Wampserver, you have installed a web server, a database server, PHP language and SQL queries.
Congratulations, that means you're now supposed to be:

- Network administrator
- Web server administrator
- Database Administrator
- Developer
- Analyst
- Programmer.
- etc.

All these roles normally occupy at least one person per zone. These people are expected to know what they are doing before they start.

WAMPServer is mainly a LEARNING TOOL, so that people can learn and try to take one or more of these trades in hand.

Once out of the box, WAMPServer works 99.9% of the time. The remaining 0.1% is mainly due to non-compliance with the prerequisites.

However, the skills needed to use it correctly are not acquired on their own, and are not part of the Wampserver box.

The role of this forum is to allow you to have the basic operation of Wampserver, i. e.:
- Green Icon of the notification of the green taskbar.
- Access to the Wampserver homepage "localhost"
- No error message at the bottom of the "localhost" page
- Local access to PhpMyAdmin

Once there, Wampserver is functional; the rest: installation of CMS or WEB application, access from outside, resolution of PHP errors, etc. is not within the scope of this forum.

Our parents spent hours and hours teaching us to go to the potty when we were in our infancy, because knowing how to use the toilet is an essential skill in society.
Our teachers have spent months and years teaching us to read, write and count.
In secondary school, we spent many months learning one or more foreign languages.
By majority, even after hours of accompanied driving, it took at least twenty hours of training to "know" how to drive a car.
I spent four years of apprenticeship before practicing my profession, then five years at the Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers (National Conservatory of Arts and Crafts) to perfect my knowledge and skills.
Nevertheless, popular belief would have us all be computer wizards at a stroke of a magic wand.
As long as we do not firmly explain that computing (yes, it is very general but good...) is like reading, writing, counting, like a language or a culture: you have to learn and practice for a long time to "use" it correctly, everyone will think they are a computer scientist from the moment they use Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Google, and at 5% of the possibilities, Word, Excel or Powerpoint.
Today, advertisers, marketers, salespeople say exactly the opposite, that the computer can do everything, easily and simply, difficult to blame too much on the consumer to whom it flatters the ego.
