XAMPP is one of the most popular PHP development environment. It is completely free and easy to install.I have created a WordPress site using the Windows version of this free software on my PC. Here are the steps to install XAMPP on Windows PC. I have installed XAMPP for Windows version 3.2.1 on Windows 10 computer. Yes, it is a very old version. I have been using this free software for long time without upgrading to newer versions. And following is the complete guide to setup WordPress site on Windows PC via XAMPP.
The local WordPress site was created easily. To test a new WordPress theme on mobile device, I opened the XAMPP server IP in a web browser on Samsung Galaxy mobile phone, the following error shows up. Note that you can’t visit localhost to access the XAMPP server or any sites created on it if you are using another computer or mobile device in the local network. Instead you should visit its local IP address, such as 192.168.1.x. See how to find out your IP address on Windows 10 computer.
Xampp Require Local Server
New XAMPP security concept:

How To Use Xampp
XAMPP server works like a local server in your system that is generally used by PHP developers to test the websites (web-projects). This tutorial will show you the various steps on how to install and configure the XAMPP server on Windows 10. I'm trying to access a Active Directory from my local webserver. To do this I'm using the latest version of xampp and a PHP script called adLDAP. If I understand things right, I need to.
Apache/2.4.9 (Win32) OpenSSL/0.9.8y PHP/5.4.27`
The error seems very self explanatory and the problem can be solved by commenting out some line in the above mentioned configuration file. If you also run into this problem, you can try the fix below.
Xampp Require Local Change
From the XAMPP Control Panel, find Apache service, click the Config button, a drop-down menu with a list of configuration files shows. Apache (httpd-xampp.conf) is on the list. Select this file, it opens in a Notepad window. Note that this configuration file can also be accessed using File Explorer on PC. If XAMPP was installed in path i.e C:/XAMPP, then you can find the above file from this file path C:/XAMPP/apache/conf/extra/httpd-xampp.conf.
Once you open this file in a text editor, scroll down to the bottom of this XAMPP configuration file, you will see the New XAMPP security concept. Comment the line Require local by adding # sign before it, save the file. Restart the Apache service, stop and then start it again, in XAMPP on PC. Then you should be able to access Xampp from a local network device, your smartphone, tablet, another computer in the same LAN.
