    Greetings!

    I'm using the preinstalled Apache for a local PHP project I'm working on. How would I go about putting the site online, so people can access it via my IP Address?

    Cheers!

    You need to configure your Router (see manual, port forwarding) to forward incoming requests on port 80 to your Mac's IP address on port 80.

    You might also want to setup a Dynamic DNS Account (see Goggle) in order to make it easier to reach your site.

    Thanks for the reply!

    Would it be easy to point that to a specific folder?
