    does anyone know how to set up the “localhost” so that a mobile device could open up a site in xampp?

    Traq,

    The mobile device recognized the xampp install, so I tried using the http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/wp/wp-admin/index.html … but it switched the IP to “localhost” and said Web page not available. …

    @andy_unleash – thanks for the reference to this great testing tool. I’m trying to use it, and am able to access the IP address on the hosting machine, however, for some reason it is only pulling the html file. It’s not grabbing all the rest of the locally hosted files, such as: css, javascript, plugins, etc.
    How did you work that out?
    Thanks

    You can set up a local tunnel and then use their slew of emulators.
