Good day,

I've created a webpage on localhost using php. I have a local network with 3 computers at home. I can access the webpage only from one computer (http://localhost/mywebpage/). What changes should I make in phpmyadmin to be able to access the webpage from all computers? Is it possible?

Thank you in advance.

I have turned off Windows Firewall and it is working now. Thank you all for help!
