I have created a website for mobile using PHP and jQuery. It works on my PC but now I want to test it with my Android device. How can I do that?

How can I access a WAMP server's IP from my Android device?

My mobile and PC are connected within the same router. Should I directly connect to my PC or can I do that through the router?

I have searched about it and found that I have to change permissions in phpmyadmin.conf but still it does not work. Any ideas why doesn't it work?

My httpd.config has something like this.

<Directory />
    Options FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride None
Order deny,allow
Deny from all
Allow from
</Directory> is my android device's IP.



I assume you are using windows. Open the command prompt and type ipconfig and find out your local address (on your pc) it should look something like or where the end digit is the one that changes. It should be next to IPv4 Address.

If your WAMP does not use virtual hosts the next step is to enter that IP address on your phones browser ie If you have a virtual host then you will need root to edit the hosts file.

If you want to test the responsiveness / mobile design of your website you can change your user agent in chrome or other browsers to mimic a mobile.


Edit: Chrome dev tools now has a mobile debug tool where you can change the size of the viewport, spoof user agents, connections (4G, 3G etc).

If you get forbidden access then see this question WAMP error: Forbidden You don't have permission to access /phpmyadmin/ on this server. Basically, change the occurrances of deny,allow to allow,deny in the httpd.conf file. You can access this by the WAMP menu.

To eliminate possible causes of the issue for now set your config file to

<Directory />
    Options FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride All
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
        Require all granted

As thatis working for my windows PC, if you have the directory config block as well change that also to allow all.

Config file that fixed the problem:

Problem was that the /www apache directory config block still had deny set as default and only allowed from localhost.

I am assuming that you know what an .htaccess file is.

You can achieve this by two methods:

Method 1:

`#1- Loads the page asdf.php but 
     displays asdf in the address bar  

RewriteBase   /site  
RewriteRule ^([^/.]+)?$ $1.php `  

Method 2:

`#2- Loads the page asdf.php and 
displays asdf.php in the address bar. 
The R flag tells Apache to redirect to the

RewriteBase   /site  
RewriteRule ^([^/.]+)?$ $1.php [R]`  

I hope this will help you.

You have to give the proper path of php.exe

exec("c:wamp<where ever you exe is>/php.exe test.php");

so it has to be a proper path

In order to remotely access a PostgreSQL database, you must set the two main PostgreSQL configuration files:


Here is a brief description about how you can set them (note that the following description is purely indicative: To configure a machine safely, you must be familiar with all the parameters and their meanings)

First of all configure PostgreSQL service to listen on port 5432 on all network interfaces in Windows 7 machine:
open the file postgresql.conf (usually located in C:Program FilesPostgreSQL9.2data) and sets the parameter

listen_addresses = '*'

Check the network address of WindowsXP virtual machine, and sets parameters in pg_hba.conf file (located in the same directory of postgresql.conf) so that postgresql can accept connections from virtual machine hosts.
For example, if the machine with Windows XP have IP address, add in the pg_hba.conf file:

host all all md5

this way, PostgreSQL will accept connections from all hosts on the network 192.168.1.XXX.

Restart the PostgreSQL service in Windows 7 (Services-> PosgreSQL 9.2: right click and restart sevice). Install pgAdmin on windows XP machine and try to connect to PostgreSQL.

Assuming that, like under Debian, the apache runs as user www-data and group www-data, the solution is

chown www-data:www-data www/magento1/app/etc/local.xml
chmod 440 www/magento1/app/etc/local.xml

The root user can always read and write all files.
