WampServer- localhost issue

October 2017



Issue


I just installed WampServer and when I run LocalHost, Firefox shows me a blank screen.
  • I made a script:


quote:
<? Php 
echo "Hello PHP works" 
?> 

I've installed WampServer in C/wamp/wwww and I can not see it.
  • It seems that Vista blocks access to Apache.

Solution


The problem is due to the fact that Skype uses port 80 as alternative port.
You have three solutions:
- Choose between Wamp or Skype
- Disable Skype (go to Tools-> Options, Connections tab uncheck Use port 80 and 443 as an alternative).
-Either change the httpd.conf


E.g use the 4616 port
So change the line

*
    • Listen 80
  • by
    • Listen 4616
  • and
    • ServerName localhost: 80
  • by
    • ServerName localhost: 4616


Note that, in this case, your address will always begin with


Thanks to hatemna for this tip.
