Setting Up a WAMP Server

This tutorial will walk you through setting up a WAMP Server using software that can be found on sourceforge for use. First, a little description is an order. A WAMP Server is a Windows Machine that has Apache, MySQL, and PHP on it (WAMP – Windows, Apache, MySQL, PHP) To install these before you would have to get the installs and binaries and configure them yourself and set everything up which can be a tedious task as well as very time consuming. Now, thanks to sourceforge, you can get this functionality by simply installing an application. Once you are finished with this tutorial you will be able to follow our web-based tutorials without having a domain name and/or server. Let’s get started. First we need to download our software from wampserver.com.

configuring_a_wamp_server_01

Once on that site look for the above box to appear and click on Download WAMP Server 2.0

configuring_a_wamp_server_02

Save the file somewhere that you will be able to get to once it is finished completing. It is approximately 20 Megabytes, so depending on your connection, it may take a few minutes.

configuring_a_wamp_server_03

You should now see this icon wherever you chose to save the file. Double-click on it to start the installation.

configuring_a_wamp_server_04

Select to run the file if you are prompted to do so.

configuring_a_wamp_server_05

You will be prompted to not install this version over WAMP5 1.x. Click yes to continue with the installation.

configuring_a_wamp_server_06

This first install window simply welcomes you to the installer for this application. Click next to continue.

configuring_a_wamp_server_07

This window contains the GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE that will allow you to use this software. Once you review this click the I Accepts radial button and click next to continue.

configuring_a_wamp_server_08

This box let’s you pick where you would like to install all of the files. You can change this if you like but if you do, bear in mind that you should put it in a folder that does not contain any spaces as some browsers/servers have issues handling spaces in file names. This is also where your web files will be stored under a directory called ‘www’. If you are unsure, leave this default.

configuring_a_wamp_server_09

This window will allow you to create the desktop icon and the quick launch icon to start the server by the click of a button.

configuring_a_wamp_server_10

This window just reviews all installation options. Verify the settings are correct and click next to start installing the application.

configuring_a_wamp_server_11

This is installing the software.

configuring_a_wamp_server_12

You will get the above prompt to configure FireFox as your default browser for the WAMP Server if you would like, otherwise it will use Internet Explorer.

configuring_a_wamp_server_13

This window will allow you to configure your server to forward any e-mail that your php creates to a proper server and e-mail account so that they will go to the right person once you are using it. If you don’t know these values or have the ability to use them, just leave them default.

configuring_a_wamp_server_14

This is the completion window. You have the ability to launch the server automatically after closing this window if you would like. Click Finish to start the application.

configuring_a_wamp_server_15

Once the server is running, you will see the above icon and the taskbar for the WAMP Server.

configuring_a_wamp_server_16

The above menu is what you will get if you simply left-click once on the tray icon.

Localhost – This option simply open the webpage that is stored in the home directory (which is “C:\wamp\www\index.php” by default). You can also get to this page by typing “localhost” in your web browser, or by typing 127.0.0.1 in your web browser.

phpMyAdmin – This option will launch phpmyadmin (which can also be launched by going to http://localhost/phpmyadmin/ in your web browser. phpMyAdmin is a tool to manage, query, select, and browse your MySQL databases. It is php based and relatively simple to use.

SQLSiteManager – This launches a tool to create and delete entire databases. You use this to create the databases and use phpmyadmin to manipulate the data in them. This can also be access from http://localhost/sqlitemanager/ in your web browser.

www Directory – this will open the folder where your sites files are stored. These are the files that are called when you go to localhost.

Apache – This area has the configuration settings for Apache and will allow you to make configuration that you need to make to this service.

PHP – This area has the configuration settings for PHP and will allow you to make configuration that you need to make to this service.

MySQL – This area has the configuration settings for MySQL and will allow you to make configuration that you need to make to this service.

Then you also have the options to control the services and take the server on and off line.

By default the server is set up with an index.php file that will show you the services that are started for the service. This file will also show you the projects that have started on your server based on the folders that are within the www folder. You do not have to keep this file if you do not wish to. You can delete it and make your own index.php that will be shown whenever you access localhost. There are many configurations that can be made to this server setup. Explore them and have fun. I hope this tutorial was easy to follow and thanks for reading.

        Thanks for the tips. I tried looking in Services for IIS and couldn’t see anything in there with that name. Are there any others in there that could be stopping WAMP server?

    I have wampserver 2 installed on my computer. But when I open localhost in my firefox browser, it says “Denied…..” I already do some tricks like on Peter Orlogas site but it didnt work.

    can anybody help me through these?

    • Londi

      Maybe the Wapmserver is not compatible with ur browser, pliz try diferent browsers like internet Explorer, Opera etc.

  • Dzidzo

    Ok im total newbie to this, and i did everything said there…so now the question is how to connect my own domain with wamp and so people will be able to acces my website?

  • You need to use your router and forward all traffic that comes in on port 80 to go to your computer that you are running the WAMP server on.

    This tutorial will show you how to set up port forwarding on your router. It is down about 1/3 of the way through the tutorial.

    Any questions, let me know. Thanks.

  • adrian

    why it cannot work when an IIS is intalled?, should i uninstall IIS?

  • I don’t see why you would need IIS and Apache to be running at the same time?

    • mark

      You don’t……

  • Handoko

    Just set the port in file php.ini to another port, say 8888.
    Your server will have 2 web servers IIS with port 80 and Apache with port 8888
    To accesss for apache you need to use http://www.domain.com:8888

    cheers

    Hi…i installed wamp 2.0 and everything. I put the server online and stuff but that icon in the system tray is showing that red piece. What am i doing wrong?

    • Londi

      Wait for it to be entirely white because if it shows the red pert it means that it is partially active, therefore, it cant operate in such a state.

      try checking your skype port by:

      1) exit wampp
      2)open skype
      3)go to Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Connections
      4)Uncheck the checkbox “use port 80 and 443 as alternative for incoming connections.
      5) open skype
      6) start wampp

      • sudershan

        ‘giggles’ suggestion of opening Skype and unblocking port 80 may sometimes not work. As for example in case you do not have Skype installed but you still face the same problem.

        It is also possible that MS IIS server is running and blocking Port 80. In that case you have to go to ‘add/remove Windows Components’ in the Add/Remove Programs facility in Control Panel and un-install IIS.

      • NelsonB

        Jeezzzz…. I would spend 50 years searching the web for this issue… thanks a million, I would think in million light-years that Skype would cause this problem.
        Thanks again!!

      • thanks, your suggestion help me indirectly to to find the solution for my problem. I found that port setting in my utorrent effect wampserver because I using port 80. change it and wollaa, it work again.thank you

      • I had the same problem of wamp not going online on a windows vista 64-bit install and your solution of making the modification in Skype fixed it. Thank you so much.

      • jaston

        wow..it’s been i dont know how many weeks now..i cant believe this was the problem. Who would’ve thought..thanks a million.

    • geoffrey

      I’ve skype installed, port 80 and 433 unchecked but the localhost and phpmysqladmin not ACCESSED! Any Help is highly appreciated. Thanks

  • max

    Wait. if localhost command does not work, try 127.0.0.1 in the browser. that may work when typing in localhost does not

  • if 127.0.0.1 works and localhost doesn’t it sounds like you do not have an entry for localhost in your host file.

    • Hi John, can you help please. Windows 7 64bit. The wamp sys icon is red, black and white and does not respond to click, right click or swearing. The icon is as dead as the proverbial parrot. The tool tip message reads. None of 2 services running. IIS is off and I’ve also run iisreset/stop as well, rebooted, done a dance, shouted, swore, bought flowers, spoke nicely; Nothing! No response, Wamp is dead and I am planning a funeral unless you know of a way to revive it please. (I notice that others have the same problem but I can’t find an answer from anyone).

      • If the sys icon is not responding it sounds like something may have gone corrupt and funeral may be the way to go. Un-install the one you have completely and start from scratch.

        If that doesn’t fix the issue, you must have something on your machine that is conflicting with the services and it becomes a trial and error troubleshooting process by disabling things and re-trying until you figure out what is causing the issue.

        It could also be an issue with the install not completing successfully. I run Win 7 64 Bit on my computer currently and it runs fine, so I know it isn’t an issue with Win 7 or 64-bit. Let us know what you come up with or you have any other questions.

      • Hi John. Thanks. Yes I had reinstalled a number of time. Aslo. redownloaded wamp a number of times too in case it was a corrupt copy. It does work in XP virtual, but my problem is i need to edit a few ini files which for my purposes must be done with admin rights which I cant get through the virtual mode because it has passwords ‘configured’ which I never set up and therefore can’t access them – blanks don’t work. In W7 I can get around that of course, so I must get it working. As to conflicts, I can’t think what because this set up is the same as my previous XP set and there were no conflicts there. I have read around the web that my problem is very common, more common it seems than users who are able to get Wamp working on W7! Of course those I have communicated with have completely different programmes installed, there seems to be no common denominator. I use adobe suite, Visual studio, a few graphic programmes and office, that is it. So I’ve no idea!. If a boffin can help please do!

  • jules

    hi , good day, i have installed wamp server on my pc, i got problem with MySQL, it’s looking for password in order to access it. How can i change the default password, can you help me to have some work around here.

    Any ideas, I’ve read above but no one seems to have really answered this.

    • what if you goto 127.0.0.1 instead? Sometime there is an issue with your hosts file which prevents localhost from redirecting to the right place.

  • CJ

    Hi, I’m having a problem with *WAMPSERVER*, I’v installed it and that, and i click the icon and press ‘Put Online’ and i get a message saying ”Aestan Tray Menu: Could not execute menu item (internal error) [Exception] Could not perform service action: The service has not been started.”

    Please contact me via [email protected] (Spam email will be put in Junk Folder, and if you are contacting me about this please put //lh164-wampserver/answer as the subject . Thank you)

    • That error usually means that you are running one of the following applications: IIS, Skype, Zone Alarm, NOD32, Eset, Internet Optimizer, Google Accelerator, any other database server, any other webserver?

      Check these and if you are try it without them running. You CAN use these apps at the same time, you will just need to configure them to use a different port.

      • s1h4d0w

        Another program to add to that list is TeamViewer.
        I couldn’t get it working either.

        Then noticed that some websites I blocked in my hosts file (some annoying pop-ups on certain websites that caused my system to slow down) displayed the message “This site is running TeamViewer”.
        Killed it, and it worked.

      • John

        how the hell am I supposed to know if half of these things are running?
        which processes should I look for in taskmgr.exe? I could easily terminate them if I could find the EXE file that’s running and tell it end process.

    ace,

    Do you mean the display errors in php? You do that in php.ini, but it is easier (and safer) to change that through wampserver. Open Wampserver, click on the wampserver icon in the task bar (the white half-circle). Go to PHP->PHP Settings->Display Errors.

    Hope that helps.

    • Deshna,
      Team Viewer is a Remote Access tool that has a web interface. That means that it is listening for connections on port 80 which is the port that WAMP will try to initialize. Try disabling Team Viewer or changing the port that it operates on. You might be able to turn off the web client as well. This should resolve your issue.

  • installed wamps and got my home web site up and running, however lately within the last few days i noticed that the Wamps seems to go into some sort of sleep mode if there is no activity and a reboot is required to start it up again. Is there no way it will stay running all night while i sleep. I go to bed and its working fine, i can access the site and the meter is all white. I come back in the morning and check the site and it says “cannot display the web page” I try other web sites to see if there is a problem with my router or computer but i can access everything else. I click refresh on the wamp meter and still no response. I shut the wamps server down and then on again and the meter shows yellow halfway across and refuses to give me the web site. Finally i reboot the computer and all comes back to normal. Is it not ment to run unattended or do i need to tweak something. The power settings on my computer are set to never go into sleep mode. Thanky you for your help

    Have no idea how to fix

  • Hi

    Best Regards

  • Michele

    Can someone please list some reasons as to why once WAMP is installed, and your start all services, and you type in http://localhost or 127.0.0.1 it does NOT load the index.php page within the www folder? It wont even load a basic html file. I am pretty familiar with other servers, but this is my first time using WAMP. I also made sure localhost was listed in the windows hosts files. What do you want to set in your firewall for wamp? A list of ideas would be VERY helpful to those reading this blog.

  • when I goto the local host and try clicking phpmyadmin I get this error:

    Error
    MySQL said:

    #1045 – Access denied for user ‘root’@’localhost’ (using password: NO)

    phpMyAdmin tried to connect to the MySQL server, and the server rejected the connection. You should check the host, username and password in your configuration and make sure that they correspond to the information given by the administrator of the MySQL server.

  • Michael

    Hi, I have successfully re-installed the latest version of WAMP. However I get a blank page when trying to access http://localhost/phpmyadmin
    Also when I try and access http://localhost/sqlitemanager/ I get the following error:Forbidden You don’t have permission to access /sqlitemanager/ on this server.(This is a 403 Forbidden error)Help Please Thank You

    • You should be able to load phpmyadmin, but I’m don’t believe WAMP comes with SQLite. I could be wrong, but I do know what the M in WAMP stands for MySQL.

    I have designed my web pages in Microsoft office publisher and I want to use wamp as my web server.How do I integrate the web pages into my web server?

    • I don’t have experience with office publisher. To be honest if it is a Microsoft Product you will probably have to run IIS since it will include some proprietary crap that Microsoft wrote. You can still get Microsoft Extenstions to work on apache, but I don’t have much experience with that. If your website doesn’t use any Microsoft specific server side components then you just need to make sure you are putting the files in your wamp directory, which is usually C:/wamp/public_html I believe.

  • dhananjay

    below statement is nt wrkng in my programe…

    if($session->logged_in)

    “->”….sign is nt wrkng….
    i nd suggestions!

    • The “->” should only be used when calling a function from a class object or when calling the $this reference (to access members of the current class).

      In order for your code to work, your $session variable would have to be a object built from a class: $session=new class();

      Then, logged_in would have to be a function in that class. Is this the case with your code?

    i have already installed wampserver 2 on my laptop with windows vista, the localhost it’s running well, but i can running my php scrip. can u tell me what is the problem? or i need to setting a part of wampserver before? thanks a lot.

  • Hori Kai

    Hi there
    I have wamperserver 2.0 version installed on my computer. I have XP oerating system. But the localhost comes up blank. Even typed in 27.0.0 and typed localhost but no response. Are these valid websites of 27.0.0 and localhost to appear?

    Were all these connectios like SQL and Php suppose to work or what??

    I did not understand what you meant by LOCALHOST?

    Another thing I tried was a connection. But it FAILED??

    Please tell what I have done wrong?

    Thanks
    Hori

    • localhost and 127.0.0.1 are synonyms. They mean the exact same thing. However, if you don’t have a record for localhost in your hosts file, then it wont work. 127.0.0.1 should work either way though and is the failsafe. If you goto that IP in the browser of your choice and you don’t get anything, then the server is not running or not listening to port 80.

  • I’m running IIS for the main site, but I want to add functionality which is more easily accomplished using WAMP. So, I turned off socket pooling, added another ip address, assiged the original ip to the IIS site, then installed WAMP. While the Apache service installed (and port 80 indicates that it isn’t used), the service won’t start. it says “Aestan Tray Menu Could not execute menu item (internal error) [exception] could not execute run action: the system cannot find the file specified” I’ve checked the error log, which is blank. I’ve verified that the httpd.exe files is where it’s supposed to be…I’m stumped. Any ideas?

    • Answered my own question. I had added the new ip, then tried the port option without first undoing the ip. Once I removed the ip, the port change fell into line.

    Help! I use Windows Server 2008 as a default webserver. But since I switch Asp to Joomla, I changed my Webserver to WAMP. I change port 81 for IIS. And let WAMP use port 80. So for the virtual IP(like 192.168.xxx.xxx) it works fine. But When I let the router mapping to the same virtual IP with port 80. It shows connection failure. But the IIS port 81 works normal. Is there any body can help me? Please help asap. Many Thanks in advance.

    • You may have to specify within your router settings to forward all of the request for port 80 to the machine with the wamp install. Also make sure you have put your server online (via wamp menu in task manager). Make sure whatever alias your virtual host uses is specified too in your “host” file located in c:/windows/system32/driver/ect. Also I do not know how IIS works but on wamp you have to map your server to your localhost in order for it to work correctly eg. 127.0.0.1 or localhost ; both will work,

  • Hi, anyone that can help..??
    Sorry if this reads a bit jumbled, I’m trying to answer the questions that other people were asked, and tell you what we tried to do.

    My Mum and I have been trying for WEEKS to get WampServer working on her PC (Windows XP).

    We’ve installed, uninstalled and installed again. We’ve followed step-by-step guides, video tutorials, all sorts!
    I’ve trawled through LOADS of forums and tried all the things they suggest on there and still no luck. IT’S DRIVING US NUTS!

    We’ve downloaded WampServer 2.1e (32 bits) which includes Apache 2.2.17 , Php 5.3.5 , Mysql 5.5.8 , PhpMyadmin 3.2.0.1 , SQLBuddy 1.3.2 , XDebug 2.1.0-5.3 , webGrind 1.0 and XDC 1.5

    The icon is red, and hovering displays “WAMPSERVER – server offline”, it changes to orange when we select “Start all services” and then “Put online” but it stays offline.
    We can’t “Start all services” or “Put online”. When we try to “Put online” it returns a “Aestan Tray Menu: Could not execute menu item (internal error) [Exception] Could not perform serive action: The service has not been started”

    “localhost” doesn’t work, it comes up as “HTTP Error 400”

    The User on the PC is an administrator.

    When we tried to start “wampapache”, “The wampapache service terminated with service-specific error 1 (0x1)”

    “wampmysqld service terminated unexpectedly”. It has done this nine times.

    We’ve looked for “IIS” and can’t find it anywhere on the PC. We’ve opened “Command Prompt” and typed “iisreset/stop” but it came up as “not recognised as an internal or external command”
    There isn’t Skype, Google Accelerator, Zone Alarm etc.. or any other database server or webserver on the PC.

    Please help..? :'(

    There should be an option that allow user wheter or not install mysql because it could be another version installed and this overrides the instance installed

  • Tkkaushik89

    i installed the way it was showed. but when i click local host it says object not found
     

    • make sure your server is running- to confirm, the WAMP ICON in the bottom right bar must turn to GREEN. In case you are not able to see it in GREEN (it may be orange) you may be using Skype 🙂 just exit Skype and lick the WAMP ICON, select ‘Restart All Services’- you will be done!

    Hello, after installing the wamp server, when i was trying to make database, phpMyAdmin gives me this messeage,The mysqli extension is missing. Please check your PHP configuration. 

    can any one please sort me out? thanks

    • you probably need to just enable that extension. From the icon in the task bar there are some menus. Under php there should be something for extensions. Try to find mysqli and enable it. Then restart the server. Sorry, I don’t have WAMP installed right now to give you exact instructions.

      • Moitheely

        nope…tht extension is enabled…@:(
