I had been successfully using WAMP on my PC for a year or so but after I got internet connection through LAN, I noticed that WAMP has stopped working. When I go to http://localhost or http://127.0.0.1 (port is set to 80), the page just keeps on loading indefinitely (of course there are no errors on the page, this is not related to any script errors).

I tried:

  • Re-installing wamp
  • Re-starting computer
  • Checking to see if port 80 is used by some other program (none used that)
  • I don't use SKype
  • Saw server log of apache; nothing suspicious found
  • Tried running on different browser

Also all services are running fine.

What Works:

  • I can access MySQL successfully
  • I can run PHP scripts inside an editor like PHP Designer 2005

Any ideas please, i have become very dejected, so please help.

Details:

Windows XP SP2 with Avira Antivirus

Thanks in advance.

Have you tried disabling the LAN interface and see if it's working? – o.k.w Mar 2 '10 at 13:56
    
Also, what is in your apache.conf? Specifically, what is does the Listen line have on it? – heavyd Mar 2 '10 at 14:21
    
@ o.k.w : yes still not working – Sarfraz Mar 2 '10 at 14:26
    
@heavyd: localhost port 80 – Sarfraz Mar 2 '10 at 14:27
  • WAMP is fine.
  • Disable LAN.
  • Disable any chat and community program(steam and so on).
  • Turn off antivirus.
  • Working? No?
  • Reinstall Windows or try to install wamp on your second partition.
