I am trying to access my wiki running on XAMPP with ZeroTier. I have changed its address $wgServer in LocalSettings.php from localhost to the address ZeroTier gave me, but the wiki's main page still seems to be running on localhost. Some pages point to the IP address but ultimately time out. How should I proceed?

Accessing the wiki with ZeroTier
What is the main problem of your wiki's main page? Please notify that.
Currently, the wiki opens up as normal at localhost (although the ZeroTier address is set). Sometimes a setup.php error appears on the main page but I can't reproduce it at the moment. Interestingly, when I click "Printable version" in the sidebar, on the very bottom of the print preview it shows the proper address.
Is apache (or whatever web server) setup to listen on the zerotier ip? Can you verify that your computer is actually accessible from that ip?
Yes. It still does not work. Wiki just times out. Any other server I create using that IP works just fine.
to me this sounds like something wrong on a layer below mediawiki. Try and see if the tcp connection actually is succesfully established.
