    How to Acess localhost from a second computer...

    So I'm in Florida and Fall and Winter means excellent weather for sitting out on the patio with my laptop. Problem is everything is on my desktop. At first I thought I would just share the .php files through a basic windows home network. Of course that only allows me to access the files, but not run them on my wamp server.

    Basically I was wondering if anyone knows a simple way to be able to access localhost and mysql from my laptop?

    I do this all the time. Get the IP of the server and simply access it like:

    http://192.168.1.105/phpmyadmin from any computer.
    The only constant in software is change itself

    Sweet it works! Thanks!

    Actually, for some reason it doesn't work with phpmyadmin at the end of the url. I guess I don't have the permissions set right to be able to access that from another machine. However, I can view my local sites and that's all I needed.

    Now I can put my feet up by the pool and drink a cold beer while getting some work done.
