I installed bitnami on my mac, then I can log in just fine the first time. I bookmarked the login pages for further use, however, when I try to access the bookmark, NOTHING opens.

Here is the link that I bookmarked:

http://192.168.1.8:8080/

Should I re-install bitnami? How can I access my website on a local host computer without internet connection?

Hi,

If you want to access to your wordpress always (with or without internet) from your own computer, you can install the Stack again and specify the 127.0.0.1 as hostname. If you select the 127.0.0.1 ip address, wordpress will not be available in your private network. You can also find more info about how to change the IP at http://wiki.bitnami.com/Applications/BitNami_Wordpress_Stack#How_to_change_the_default_URL.3f

Dear Beltran,

Thank you for the information, most kind of you.

I did as you said, re-installed and used 127.0.0.1 as my hostname. Worked like a charm for about 4 days. Now, when I go to logon, i get the same error message as before “Unable to Connect” – like it’s offline or something.

My link that I am using is the following:

http://127.0.0.1:8080/wordpress/wp-admin/

I don’t know what to do. What if I went ahead and bought hosting for a month and changed the DNS to match the host?

Thanks again for your help

Hi,

It is possible that the servers are not running. Check the “control” tool and see if they are running. You can find more info at http://wiki.bitnami.com/Native_Installers_Quick_Start_Guide#How_can_I_start_or_stop_the_servers.3f
