    It doesn't have to be a mobile. Either way it's an android device and it should work perfectly.

    Why not just use your PC to selfhost? Just install XAMPP, run Apache and add your files to the "C:/xampp/htodcs" folder. Then just access them with your IPv4 which you can find by going into CMD and typing "ipconfig /all"

    I use my MK808B android-stick and works very well. Just follow the tutorial linked by shaneod
    It took me about 5 minutes to download / install & set all up, very easy to do. No problems at all.

    Thanks mate, think i get it now, just ignore mobile tethering ?
    Seems very straight forward from there

    No, you still need to do something along the lines of that.
    Is there no hotspot option in your wifi settings?

    I used the standard hotspot option from the wifi settings. Just changed the SSID and pw, then just run it.

    No, on the MK808B, but it's ultimately the same. Do what he did.

    Yes, what android firmware does it have ? There should be an extra option for hotspot in the settings. No need to download an extra app for that.

    Honestly I'd just look in the wifi settings and change wifi tethering if it's there.
