Just installed softaculous and managed to install wordpress. From the localhost (address http://127.0.0.1/wp ) the wordpress site can be reached.
The local host is running in a LAN and the IMac on which it is running has the IP-addres 10.0.0.6
But now I want to reach that Wordpress site from another client in my LAN. When I type from another computer (the laptop) which has IP-address e.g. 10.0.0.12) to go to the address 10.0.0.6 (where the server is running on the IMac) I do see the ampps screen (which is the index screen with folders and directories); the URL says. 10.0.0.6 which is good (I now the server is running on that IP-address).
But when I click on the folder [wordpress] the browser jumps to 127.0.0.1/wordpress and it says that it can not connect to the server...which I understand, because the server is running on my iMac, on not on my laptop. What am I doing wrong how can I reach the localhost from another client in my LAN.
