This is for a student could you please pass this on to Demitris

Hey Demitris,

I don't think the student is getting my replies, so I am opening a ticket for him.

First post
Hi,
XAMPP:
I needed to update WP to allow me to edit themes. A bit confusing, but I was trying to edit a new child theme only to find there was no editor in my Admin dashboard. Probably related to my manual WP install.
Access:
I have read too many articles about Apache 2.4 localhost access issues, but I still have no access to my local host from my iDevices. httpd.config is configured with “Require all granted”. I disabled my PC firewall for my test to ensure it was not in the way.
PHP:
You can paste your sandbox PHP to test here: http://sandbox.onlinephpfunctions.com/

Hi,
There was not much help with how to use XAMPP to test my PHP. I created a subsite called “tutorial” pointed it to my project folder C:xampphtdocsWPtutorial index.php. I could edit index.php and then just visit the subsite to see the results.
FYI, the tutorial was missing the code for the last function discussion.
Questions:
1). When Daniel was using atom there were a lot more resources than I see when I opened my tutorial project site under XAMPP. Could you explain how these resources were added/setup, eg. Font Awsome? Never used atom b4.
2). I still can’t get access to my XAMPP sites from my iDevices using the IP for my PC. I think I am missing were to configure use of “localhost” vs the specific IP address in Apache a maybe even WP.

Could not connect to server.
Otherwise, the video was interesting.
