Hosting on WindowsServer with Xaamp, Installed fine, how do I see from a desktop computer?

Recommended Posts

I used XAMPP on a windows server machine.
I believe I have installed everything correctly.

I can access the frontend and backend of prestashop when on the server.

How do I access it from my desktop?

When I type // it just leads me the XAAMP page. 

When I type // it gives me a connection error.

Edit: This is on a LAN connection

Edit: Odd, Im able to access my backend from my desktop using //

Still can't access my frontend however.

I have resolved the issue. For those who are hosting Presta on a server and using a desktop to connect to it through LAN.

You'll get an a connection error because you will get redirected to //localhost/store.

You will need to got to the backend > Traffic > Set Shop URL > change the domain to either the IP of your Server or if you have DNS running the Name of your server.

That should resolve the issue.
