Access InvoicePlane through different computer with same network


#1

Hi All,

I am trying to access my invoiceplane from different computer with same network but been unsuccessful.

My settings are as follow:

  • Invoiceplane 1.4.10 (this is the one I can successfully installed)
  • Running on osx Mojave
  • XAMPP 5.6.4
  • Invoiceplane installed in subfolder http://localhost/invoiceplane

I am able to run invoice plan successfully in computer A where XAMPP installed.

I have a static ip set up at 192.168.x.x

But unfortunately not able to access my InvoicePlane on different machine in same network.

When type this on my web browsers ‘http://192.168.x.x/invoiceplane’ on computer B, and below error message appeared on chrome browser.

" This site can’t be reached
localhost refused to connect
Search Google for localhost invoiceplane index php sessions login
ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED "

I tried safari and firefox and both failed too.

FYI, I am also running another apps in subfolder, namely openEMR, and it can both run on both computers.

In addition, I also created a test page in subfolder and I can successfully see the page.

Thanks.

OK now its sorted…

What I did was edit index.php file as mentioned here

Set my url to only subfolder, no need to add http://localhost/

I change my
define(‘IP_URL’, ‘http://localhost/invoice/’);
to
define(‘IP_URL’, ‘/invoice’);

I checked and can access my invoiceplane with 2 different computer in same network using wifi using static ip address.

computer a: h t t p://localhost/invoice
computer b: h t t p://192.168.x.x/invoice
(since as a new user here I can only put 2 links in a post, so i just put gap between http)

Glad you sorted this out.

You should not have to change config.php,

Instead change the file ipconfig.php in your application root.
