Installing and configuring a WAMP server in windows 7 and 8



Are you looking for configuring a WAMP server in windows 7 and 8 operating system?

Does u want to configure WAMP server on your computer? 

First install the WAMP (any version mainly prefer latest version) and now I will instruct how to configure WAMP server in windows 8 operating system.

WAMP server will support for both IPv4 and IPv6 and mainly prefer for latest version because while configuring it will ask u to update it for this purpose install the currently available version.

Also your system must run Apache server in order for configuring the WAMP server to work properly (use Apache 2.2.21).

Follow the instructions correctly to configure WAMP server

Ø  Check whether the WAMP is installed properly in your system.

Ø  Now go to “C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts folder to check for the local host.

Ø  Here you need to open your editor with “Run as Administrator”

Ø  Remove the # symbol from the line 127.0.0.1 local host.(# refers to comment)

Ø  If it shows any errors in removing the # or it doesn’t exist means don’t remove the #.

Ø   Start WAMP server from your task bar. If it does not available in your taskbar means there is a problem in your installation. Restart your system and then check

Ø  When the WAMP server started ,it will show in green color which means it was enabled

Ø  Then perform wampmanager->localhost. Here you will see the wamp information page.

Up to this u need to perform correctly in order to configure it. If anything goes wrong means u have to check the mistakes and run the following commands properly.

Following Information’s needed to be checked:

1. The :: 1 ip address available in that host is an IPv6 address. Defaultly Apache does not support in the IPv6 address space but moreover in windows 7 and 8 it will be already present in the IPv6 address.

2. Here you will get the following message “You have no permission”, because you are currently the wamp using IPv6 local host address but Apache will allow you to access only from 127.0.0.1 local host(using httpd.conf)
