I'm not much of a networking guy and have been using a single desktop for quite a while. I recently got a laptop and wireless router and I'm wondering what the best options would be for syncing files, especially my xampp dev server, between the two machines. I'd like to be able to work from both at times but keep the files synced.
Would I want to keep xampp and all my files on the desktop and connect to it from the laptop somehow? Or would I want to be running separate copies of xampp and just sync the htdocs (web root) and database folder? Should I say eff it and just work on my web server in a private directory? Or give up trying to keep both synced?
What do you do? And, how?
cable modem --> router --> Win7 desktop via LAN (w/ xampp installed already)
--> Win7 laptop via wifi
