I've just installed magento 2 based on Windows using Xampp .. and it is working fine. my problem is, i purchased a domain name for it and put it in httpd-vhosts but i can't access it from outside (WAN).

Note: i can access the xampp dashboard page through https://domainname/dashboard but when i type https://domainname/magento to access magento it is loading for 1-2 Mins and change the url in the browser to the localip! like this: http://localhost/magento and for sure i can't access Magento server local IP or localhost from outside I think there is an issue in file located in magento folder that cause the redirection problem.

Check secure/unsecure base url in core_config_data table.

  • i configure it to be localip/magento and configure a vhost in apache server using ProxyPass as the below:- <VirtualHost *:443> ServerName mydomain.com ServerAlias www.mydomain.com ProxyPreserveHost on ProxyPass / localhost/magento SSLEngine on SSLCertificatefile "conf/ssl.crt/server.crt" SSLCertificatekeyfile "conf/ssl.key/server.key" </VirtualHost>
