    If the computer w/ LAMP/WAMP installed is shut-down and someone tries to access the homepage will it still load?

    I followed all the instructions, i forwarded my port but still i can’t access my page everytime i key in my ipaddress to the web browser. What’s wrong with this?

  3. Charlehmeister says:

    Great. 1 problem: I don’t know my IP’s admin login info. 🙁

  4. littlebob26 says:

    Ok it all works good on the localhost and but on the public ip address it just has a white scree same with the domain? Cheers for Anyhelp.

    @zdevine3000 If it’s a penryn one then just try to put another one in yourself or take to the apple store and ask for a disk drive repair.. but first you should try to get a new one and put it in yourself.
    If it’s a unibody one… still take it to Apple because only they can fix it.

    @zerobuu Perhaps your firewall is causing some problems. Try (temporarily) disabling it, and see what happens.

  7. zerobuu says:

    hey can anyone help me on this, i got it to work on my local ip address but when i try doing it on my routers ip address it is not working. I have forwarded the ports already

    What OS r u using? wamp is for windows and lamp is for Linux, but neither of these work on mac.

    P.S. To all people of YouTube:

    I got a hold of a 13.3″ MacBook with Snow Leopard that has a broken/cracked screen. Everything still works, but I just need a miniDVI to DVI adapter. When I was trying to install windows(I need it for certain programs) it wouldn’t install because the Superdrive is bent I think, PLEASE HELP!!!

    i hope you dont use this in a production server. windows especialy in apaches is very insecure. IIS works better in windows because it is a native microsoft software alas a good tool for deveopment

    @dandankarpinski222 Hey Dan – for the 15 people that are on it, it’s an overkill, so that’s a good thing. I don’t have to buy another one for another 3 or 4 years; Hope you got a few smiles out of this. Trust me, we know what we’re doing — this was just light, tongue in cheek humor. Thanks for the support. – Alfred.

  49. dandankarpinski222 says:

    that is an awsome setup, can never have too quick a server, that will run warcraft very nicely lol if you stuck a good gpu in it.
    awsome vids man keep them coming..

    @nolobedeagain You’re still a douche. And I’m blocking your ‘again’ account, since this is obviously your modus operandi herein.
