Wamp Server Error message: Forbidden ..You don't have permission to access / on this server."

Issue


I have installed Wamp server and it's displaying the following error message, each time I'm trying to access to my localhost (via web browser):
Forbidden You don't have permission to access / on this server.

Solution


Click on the Wamp server icon in the Notification area (Taskbar).
  • Scroll down and select "Put Online".
  • Your server will restart automatically.
  • Try to access the localhost again.
