Hi, I have installed wordpress on a windows 2003 server with wamp. When looking at the site on the server's browser it looks fine.

When viewing on any client machine via i.e8 and firefox, it doesnt apply the style's, i just have raw html. I can access wp-admin either.

Has anyone any ideas?

Many thanks.

The server could be referring to itself as something like localhost or localhost.localdomain or even 127.0.0.1, making Wordpress try to take you there. You could try having a look at the url addresses of the styles/pages not working, and adapt the server configuration as necessary.

Look at 'siteurl' in the database 'options' table.  'siteurl' is used to prefix all links in Wordpress.  It need to be an address or IP that is available to everybody who is accessing the site.  'localhost' won't work.
