I've downloaded Apache 2.22, MySql 5.6.10 and PHP 5.3.5. I've set them ready in Computer A in my home. I'm able to visit my website by typing localhost in the browser in Computer A. I have another Computer B in my home. I use a router to get on internet. A and B share the router. 1.By now, am I supposed to be able to visit my website from computer B by just typing A's IP address (say 192.168.2.9) in the browser? If it's not working, is it because of the router's firewall? It's not OK whether I tried to ping A's IP address on B, or the other way around. Does this mean A and B can't communicate with each other? (A's IP 192.168.2.9, B's IP 192.168.2.10, submask 255.255.255.0) What might be the problem? 2. What should I do to allow people all over the internet to be able to visit my website using my public IP (IP on the wan side of the router)? I know I should forward the port. But I'm not very familiar with the concept. I know Apache use port 80. So should I just forward port 80 to Computer A's IP address? Is this the port of Computer A or the router? Or I associate the port 80 of the router with the port 80 of Computer A? Is port forwarding the only thing left to do? What else should I do? Thank you very much! Please help me!
