I have a laptop running XP Pro. Also using web software called Front Accounting to handle my paperwork for small business. I installed by myself all the necessary software and have some experience using Apache / PHP / Mysql.
Brief description of problem:
I installed all the components Apache/php/mysql as per the documentation. Create a phpinfo(); script to test. And install phpmyadmin to configure database for web application. This is where things don't work so well.
Scenario A: If I am working away from internet access, say at a remote site, then the local webserver, mysql, front accounting all work fine. I get access through http://localhost/...
Scenario B: As soon as working from home or office where internet is connected (through wireless router) the localhost/phpmyadmin stops responding, I only get a blank page (No Errors). When I sever the connection to my wireless internet, the webpages will again respond properly.
I have a feeling it is hosts related so I check hosts file: file contains:
Router configuration: I have exact same problem on three completely separate routers (Office=linksys, Home=dlink, Parents=dlink). Each router has its own dhcp server and my wireless IP address becomes something like 192.168.0.100 as example. Network settings are basic dhcp settings (no proxy). Windows firewall is completely disabled. I have no firewall or anything unusual running that could interfere.
So I tried to access web through http://192.168.0.100/...
Problem persists. Initial phpmyadmin screen comes up, but the as I enter the main database part the screen hangs.
I can work locally without internet and if I need something then turn internet on, but it's a complete pain. Without fail this is the difference: not connected to internet everything works fine, connect to internet it does not.
I need your help, oh experts! :)
