Apache Configuration Question

easyphp / apache not able to connect to my dokuwiki with machines (virtuals and not virtual ones) on the same lan

I'm trying to setup a dokuwiki installed on an easyphp based on a windows distribution.

Nothing fancy so far

I can use the doku on my machine with the url

Issue is I cannot access the wiki from another machine , virtual or not virtual one.

I thought it was an issue with the
. I amended both part (see below)

<Directory "C:/Program Files (x86)/EasyPHP-Webserver-14.1b2/binaries/httpserver/cgi-bin">
AllowOverride None
Options None
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

And also the second part

<Directory "C:/Program Files (x86)/EasyPHP-Webserver-14.1b2/modules">
Options FollowSymLinks Indexes
AllowOverride All
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

I restarted the service and yet I still could not connect through any web browser with machines installed on my lan.

So I thought maybe it has something to do with the port

I did a
netstat -a -n
on the machine where I installed the easy php.

It seems to be listenning

enter image description here

I can ping 888
yet when I'm doing a
telnet 888
, I cannot connect.

So I disabled my firewall and still I cannot connect to my wiki through the web browser or telnet 888

I do not have any more clues to where look at.

Any leads that will help me solve this issue , are more than welcomed.


Update : I've done these steps since talking to Omar yesterday eve

  • Change to
    Listen 888

  • Change
    Order allow,deny Allow from all
    to just
    Require all granted

Answer Source

I hate to say it but using easy php , for a prototype usable by more than one machine on the same lan, is a real pain.

This is my way to have a quick dokuwiki prototype usable by all the availables machine on your lan:

  • Install a linux virtual machine on your laptop (ubuntu server in my case)
  • Install apache2, php5 & libapache2-mod-php5
  • Restart the apache2 service
  • Copy your Doku folder in the folder html

And done. You can use your dokuwiki

Forget about easyphp and the likes
