I have a wordpress server running already and want to have another one (on a different PC). Since both these are going to be behind the same router I need to change the port of the new wordpress server.
I have used port 8080 and have no problems when accessing the server through local LAN. But when I tried to access from outside I only get a very primitive looking page (no graphics, cant go to any link).
I'm sure it has to be with the IP settings I put in Wordpress. I have tried different combinations and every time I change the IP in wordpress I screw up the complete installation and I have already reinstalled (found it to be easier) Ubuntu few times. So this time I need some help to get the settings right with your help.
I want to know the settings for the Wordpress and MySql.
Wordpress - Need to set two settings:
On my first server I have set the following:
Wordpress URL: http://www.mysite.com/wordpress
Home URL: http://www.mysite.com
And in the /etc/hosts file I have set:
So now that I'm running on port 8080, should I set:
Wordpress URL: http://www.myothersite.com/wordpress
Home URL: http://www.myothersite.com
And in the /etc/hosts file:
Also, do I need to mention 8080 when I set the host for the DB?
Usually 'localhost' is set. Should I need to mention localhost:8080 for the MySql?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
