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 192.168.0.104 </Directory>
192.168.0.104 is my android device's IP.
I assume you are using windows. Open the command prompt and type
ipconfigand find out your local address (on your pc) it should look something like
192.168.0.5where 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
http://192.168.1.13If 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
httpd.conffile. You can access this by the WAMP menu.
To eliminate possible causes of the issue for now set your config file to
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.
