I run the computer lab at an elementary school and I'm trying to set up an intranet as a front end to server access for teachers and students. The server is a Mac mini running OS X server 10.5.8. The lab has 26 iMac's (all running OS X, 10.5.8). We're using Firefox to try to connect.
I used MAMP to download apache, mysql and php and have it all up and running fine. I was going to do the site in wordpress, but after a few problems, I simplified and created a very basic html home page just for checking access. I'm using iweb on the Mac mini server to design and publish the webpage. I've checked that it's putting the files where I've asked it to and I've checked that the files have the correct info.
The main issue I'm having is I can't figure out what folder to put the webpage in on the Mac mini so the iMacs in the lab can see it. All the machines in the lab (including the Mac mini server) get their ip address from a DHCP server run by the school district, but each of them at least portrays a unique ip address when I do about this Mac and get more info. When I enter the ip address of the server (http://10.72.33.3
) into the address bar of one of the lab computers, it redirects me to http://10.72.33.3/groups/workgroup
, shows me a premade webpage with some books in a header image and asks me to log in.
I've tried putting the website in /library/webserver/documen
ts, in /users/admin/sites, but no luck. Any ideas for how to let the iMacs in the lab see my locally hosted website? Let me know if I didn't include any necessary info or if there's anything else I need to do/setup.
