Intranet/Office Network : Two or more than two computers, router and communicating media Combined together to form a single network Inside our office is termed as Office network or Intranet.
Though we have lots of options in open source, Now we are going to use XAMPP package which provides integrated Apache , Mysql, filezilla, Mercury and tomcat server and codeigniter as framework within which we can build very handy applications for our office
Finally we will use our application as intranet application, otherwise we can host prebuilt applications and use within our Office Network
go to the following link to download latest version of XAMPP as per your need
now you can Install XAMPP in your system
After Installing Xampp simply downlaoad or create required application files and copy that file to folder htdocs inside xampp
Now any application files inside of the htdocs can be accessed from any pc in your network like below
here information is the folder inside htdocs accessed from browser
similarly any files can be accessed form other computer as well where you need to provide ip of the server in which xampp/apache is running
in above picture the ip used is the ip address of the server in which xampp is running and wordpress is, as we all know, the famous CMS.
we can try any frameworks like drupal, joomla, wordpress, codeigniter, laravel etc and develop and deploy as per our requirements
