working only on my pc not working worldwide

Too bad that domain "ONLY" shows on the computer you have running xampp, hehehe, "old trick".

Can this be accessed in a network too?

Great tip bro. I might add that if you’re using mysql with your php code, don’t forget to change the login credentials to your new localhost pseudo name. I keep my login credentials in one file and then include for each php script that needs it.

its work but the domain work only in our local computer any idea for working online?,

Thank you for the nice video and it works. I can access http://www.abc.com from localhost but I can’t access my actual online http://www.abc.com from my web browser.Is there a solution?

helped a lot. thanks

Great bro. But how we can take it online.

Thanks Dude.. You helped me . U went for the easy way..

Hi. Great video man. Can we do this with online? Like a hosted WP site, then we do CLI-Commands? I’ve seen a plugin but I’m hoping we can do it remotely?

i use apache but i don’t mess around with the settings and it makes everything work fine but if you mess around with them without knowing what your doing well your on your own because the green light which usually appear when apache and mysql is on might not work

Its work for me. Thank you so much

can i use this on my local area connection rather than typing the ip address?

it says not secure

My apache refuses to start after changing the httpd-vhosts file

Kya wampp server free our safe hai

# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.

#

# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each

# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should

# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.

# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one

# space.

#

# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual

# lines or following the machine name denoted by a ‘#’ symbol.

# For example:

#

# 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server

# 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host

# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.

# 127.0.0.1 localhost

# ::1 localhost

I just found these. What can I do?
