Vanilla install on xampp?

My friends going to attempt to create a style for Vanilla, so he's set up an xampp server and is trying to give me access to check it out.

He's managed to install it all just fine, but for some reason when I type in his IP I can't access it at all. I know this isn't a Vanilla related question, but thought someone on here might be able to help since I assume that's how Jazzman etc have their forurms hosted.

He's disabled Windows Firewall but is still behind a router, I guess that's the problem? Thanks

    Also, a quick SQL question here, how do you change every entry into a certain field with an SQL statement in phpmyadmin?

    For example, every name set to Nick, or whatever :\ (yeah I've googled, but had no luck)
  • I've never used phpMyAdmin, but if you can just type in some code and run it then you can do this:
    UPDATE <table name> SET <column name> = 'the value that you want'

    and it will that value for the specified column in every row in the table.
  • Your friend probably hasn't forwarded port 80 on his router to the computer he's hosting the forum on yet.

    Ahh superstars, thanks guys! I've updated the fields accordingly, and I'm teaching him how to forward his port now :)
  • maybe he has also a firewall (windows firewall, norton, or some else) active, that blocks you

    Sorry to be a pain chaps, but how does he forward port 80 on a 3com router?

    Makes no sense to me or him :S (the top one is his xbox btw)
  • Put in his local IP address, (run ipconfig) LAN port and public port should both be 80, check enabled. (I believe.)

    Also apache might just listen on, but not listen the public address of your friend.

    Not sure if you figured it out or not blize, but he wants to configure port forwarding to answer on port 80. Map all requests on port 80 to the machine running the webserver behind the router.
