WAMP Localhost 100% Fix

The problem in Windows 7 is idiotic..

While most people disable  all applications that use port 80  such as  Skype / IIS / NOD32 … etc.


The smart move I did was to change the port in httpd.conf  to “localhost 8080” instead of   80

As for Skype.. you can disable the use of port 80 as alternative.. in the options menu


Smile    now if the LOCALHOST still doesn’t browse.

All it takes is  to start the APACHE..  the problem is..   ( IT DOESN’T START AUTOMATICALLY, neither is managed by WAMP )


You need to run the following code on your Directory / RUN / or Command Prompt Window.

WAMP Directory\bin\Apache\Apache Version\bin\httpd.exe –k install

WAMP Directory\bin\Apache\Apache Version\bin\httpd.exe –k start

Here’s an example on my version I installed WAMP on E:  with Apache version

E:\wamp\bin\apache\Apache2.2.21\bin\httpd.exe –k install

E:\wamp\bin\apache\Apache2.2.21\bin\httpd.exe –k start
