    I produce operation and maintenance manuals for the Construction industry - the manuals are effectively HTML web sites comprising 50/60 HTML pages and countless hyperlinked pdf files. We have produced hundred of these manuals and they are stored on a NAS system.

    At present we use Rackspace from which we provide individual links to our clients for each manual - this works fine but costs a bomb.

    I am trying to use the NAS store as the server providing links to my clients to access directly - so far I have made it work except that the frontpage of the manual displays only in HTML script not as the finished product web page - hence it is useless.

    Can anyone advise what I need to do to achieve the desired outcome - when answering hopefully please don't be too technical - I'm old lol :)

    This is what it looks like - http://192.168.1.116:8181/4.0/index.php?share/file&user=admin&sid=PZRkbTrA - link to NAS

    This is what is should look like http://bit.ly/2AZuNUvFINZELLS - link to Rackspace

    Unfortunately, I am not able to render the first (most crucial) link:( - The site can't be reached
    I see that it is a .php file.
    Can you copy/paste it using the insert php option? (4th icon from the right on the Post Reply header)

    That url is typically to a local drive not one on the internet. Your local router typically has an address of 192.168.1.0 or 192.168.1.1 and the other devices on your local network have the higher last numbers. 192.168.1.116 is not an ip address that anyone outside of your local network can see. That address is in the list for local use only. See https://www.quora.com/What-is-the-192-168-1-1-IP-address
