I cannot register my new intranet server because you say the domain is invalid.

Good morning,

I decided (we are traveling) to install a local server for development. I used xampp and wordpress with a MultiSite install. You are looking for my API key for Anti-Splog. Why I know I don’t need this on an internal server, I do want to keep everything in sync. When I tried to register it you seem to not like my computers name (Samantha), I’m guessing because it doesn’t have an extension; ie: samantha.com. I am not about to rename my computer so is there a work around for this?

Thanks, Jesse

    Hi again Jesse

    1) You’re right you don’t need Anti Splog for a local site. That said if you want to use wordpress like you would on a webhost you need to edit the hosts file and resolve a domain ( I use a .dev extension for this ) locally. Take a look this tutorial


    2) Don’t rename the computer name, it wont help and its not needed.

    3) Once you have a local domain resolved say, samantha.dev you can install the dashboard plugin and it will keep everything up to date for you

    Hope that clarifies
