Hi Sir,
I'm to setup a LAN for 5 machines with an 8 port switch. The machines has Windows 7 and windows 10.

The purpose is to access a localhost PHP application with an SQL SERVER.

THE APPLICATION IS ON WINDOWS 7 MACHINE.

HOW DO I GO ABOUT.

THANKS

Do what? Publish the intranet website, or build the network?

All of your pc need to be either in the same domain (do you have a dc?), or the same workgroup. Set them to the same workgroup.

Then, point your browser to the php webhost!

Hi Sir
We are not publishing the website. I want to know how to network our computers without internet.

So that we ca access do entries into our local database.

Ok, put all of the pcs into one workgroup. Right click over start charm, select system, select rename this pc. Set a workgroup. Restart.

Then you need to set up permissions on the database server. So if userone on pc Newpc needs access, ypu have to specifically set that user up on the database server.

It is probably best to hire a pro services pro to perform this task
