Cannot access Wordpress on LAN computers.
On the computer where Laragon is installed I can access the WordPress installations by typing 192.168.1.20/xxx Where xxx is the name of the WordPress install.
On other computer on the LAN I can ping 192.168.1.2, and when I enter 192.168.1.20 I see the Laragon screen. But, when I enter 192.168.1.20/xxx, after a few seconds the typed in address changes to https://localhost/xxx and it says that it is unable to connect.
For hours, I've been searching for a solution for this and it really has me stumped.
I can ping the host 192.168.1.20 and, as stated, I see the Largon screen when I enter that address into the browser. But, I just cannot access the WordPress sites at all.
In one of the WordPress installations, in the wp-options table, the site URL was set to localhost instead of http:\
I don't ever recall setting it WP so a mistake somehow was made when I did the WP install.
What confused me was that I used the WP instance on the install computer for some months, and, since it was looking for localhost and finding it, there was never a problem. Only when I tried to log into it on another network computer did the problem pop up.
