Local Server Site Hosting Issues..

Permalink
Hey guys, we've been working with a dev to build our concrete5 site. We're at the point now where we want to transfer the website onto our local network and server.

We have received the site files in an FTP and i have put them in the C:\\(concrete5sitenamehere) directory. I have also imported the sql database and configured the /config/database.php file to the appropriate pathways on our server.

'driver' => 'c5_pdo_mysql',
'server' => 'http://hgportal.hgc.com',
'database' => 'hg_members',
'username' => 'root',
'password' => 'password',
'charset' => 'utf8',

We want to host it on our local network, so that it can only be accessed at work, by work computers,

This may be a silly question, but how do I get the new url for the site. Now that everything is in place, how do I actually go about launching the site...?

Thanks!

We will run the site with IIS. Yes, the sql files and server are on the same machine as the website files. Do i need to put in a url into index.php to get the website to launch?

Thanks!

Do you have mysql installed on the server?
In your database file you'd 'normally' have it set to localhost for mysql running on the same server.

If you have IIS installed with your website set to run with default settings then you 'should' be able to access the website from a pc on the same network using the ip address of the machine the site is running on.

What is the ip address ov your server? What happens if you try yo go to that IP address jn a browser?
