I am using WampServer with PHP and MySQL. When I try to access the localhost I get:

You don't have permission to access / on this server.

The weird thing is it works fine in Opera while it does not work on Chrome or Internet Explorer.

Why am I experiencing this issue and how can I correct it?

Try this, it works for me:

  • 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.
