Hi, I have an intranet website on my home computer (Windows 10 64 bit). The pages, primarily htm, pdf, txt and word and a few jpgs and gifs, link very nicely. I would like to have access to this remotely when traveling. Static access is no good; I need dynamic pages. I keep my files in a directory called medmal. I can download and install Apache and related packages in Windows, but I am stumped at configuring for remote access. I wan to run this as a password protected local/personal web server. Can anyone walk me through the config files for this? Or, please suggest a simplistic “Dummies” guide or like publication. Many thanks.
Well for starters you’re almost certainly going to need to punch a hole through your router to the machine, which is beyond the scope here probably, and will depend on your router and internet provider.
The server can probably remain the same as it is now, if you’ve got it working intranet; depending on what server technology you’re currently powering it with, this could be as simple as modifying a single line, or as complex as rewriting a significant portion of the current config file.
Probably need more information from you to proceed with any further advice.
