Access WAMP Server on LAN (Local Area Network)

Access WAMP Server on LAN (Local Area Network)

How to access WAMP Server in LAN or WAN.

Introduction

The WAMP server is very useful and is widely used open source. It works great when you are working in a local machine. But when you want to access the same WAMP server form a different machine on LAN or WAN then it’s not possible.

Background

Consider you are working in a team in a big project and each member of the team works in different modules and the same database. Issues arise when you merge files as well as the database. The best solution is to implement SVN on your server (for checking in and checking out files and folders etc.) and ask all team members to access that server instance.

How to do this

Here are the steps to make WAMP enabled on LAN:

Step 1

First you need to set up the WAMP service on your server and on the required services. And make sure that your WAMP server is online and it’s running on your browser using http://localhot:8888/ (I have given a fixed port number 8888 to my WAMP server.

To run the WAMP Apache server on your specified port, do the following. Go in the C\wamp\bin\apache\Apache2.4\conf\httpd.conf file and search for “#Listen” and then change the port from 80 to 8888 and in that case, your URL will be http://localhost:8888/. Like below:

#Listen 12.34.56.78:80
Listen 192.168.1.154:8888

Step 2

Now make the WMAP Server accessible in the LAN, you have to get\wamp\bin\apache\Apache2.4\conf\httpd.conf and open it and find the following code:

AllowOverride None
Options None
Order allow,deny
Deny from all

And change the above code to:

AllowOverride None
Options None
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

Step 3

Now you have to bind the server static IP to the port number (remember we have done this in the start) so for this you have be on the same file and change “Listen 8888” to “Listen [IP Address of Server]:8888”. It will look like “Listen 192.168.1.154:8888”.

Listen 192.168.1.154:8888

Step 4

Great! The next step is to open port (8888) of the server such that everyone can access your server. This depends on which Operating System you are using.

If you are using Windows Vista, then follow the below steps.

Open Control Panel >> System and Security >> Windows Firewall then click on “Advance Setting” and then select “Inbound Rules” from the left panel and then click on “Add Rule…”. Select “PORT” as an option from the list and then in the next screen select “TCP” protocol and enter port number “8081” under “Specific local port” then click on the ”Next” button and select “Allow the Connection” and then give the general name and description to this port and click Done.

If you are using Windows 7/8/8.1, then follow the below steps.

Open Control Panel >> System and Security >> Windows Firewall then click on “Allow an app through windows firewall” and then select “Change Setting” then check the “Apache HTTP Sever” service click OK to apply the setting.

Now, you are done with PORT opening.

Next is “Restart All Services” of WAMP and access your machine in LAN.
