Can't Access My Accounts From another System

Post by Md Farrukh » 27 Nov 2017, 14:57

Hello Team,

I have newly installed Opencats ATS login as admin in Ubuntu system and now I m trying to access it from another system via http://localhost/opencats/index.php?m=contacts, I m not able to access. Please advice me can I install opencats in one system and accessit from any other system either Windows or Ubuntu but connected to the same network.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks & Regards,
Md Farrukh Shek

Assuming you're talking about a normal network inside a router, you should be able to access it with the ip address of the host machine (replace localhost in the address with the ip address).

Ex: 192.168.1.8/opencats/index.php?m=contacts
I think that will work.

If you have any complicated network settings or security...I'm not sure.

Try it, let us know whether it works.

Unfortunately it didn't work.
Or do I need to change the configuration in Mariadb i.e.

CREATE USER 'opencats'@'localhost‘ IDENTIFIED BY ‘databasepassword’; instead I can use CREATE USER 'farrukh'@'192.168.1.128‘ IDENTIFIED BY ‘password’;
CREATE DATABASE opencats;
GRANT ALL ON *.* TO 'farrukh'@'192.168.1.128' WITH GRANT OPTION;

Please do advice.

Thanks & Regards,

No, you won't need to change anything like that.

You are simply changing "localhost" to your ip address in your web browser only....correct?

Try it without the http in front. Try: 192.168.1.8/opencats/

Ok, so the server system is ubuntu, and your second system that you're trying to login through is ubuntu also?

Sorry for the silly question, but you're sure the IP address is correct?
