How to set up remote access to a web server on a local network
Posted on 2011-02-22
Hopefully I can make this understandable.
I'm am doing a redesign of a current live website. I didn't want to make changes to the current site so I set up a local webserver, using XAAMP, at the office. Hopefully, at the current time, no one has access to that server except here in the office.
The new web site will be designed using php/mysql and uses a web interface for entering product info, etc. I would like to have the ability to have people work on this offsite, i.e. access the web interface from remote location. (this is so I can get my wife to do all the stuff I don't want to).
My question is, how do I do this? Do I use a VPN? If so what kind? What is the easiest way to do this?
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated
