I just installed a WAMP Server 2.2e, wamp icon in tray is green, showing - Wamp server is offline. When i'am trying to access my localhost address, i receive an error 403 Forbidden. For localhost, localhost/phpmyadmin, for my, nothing works.

After switching to Online mode, i can access localhost and, but not phpmyadmin in both localhost and ipadress mode.

What's the problem ? Nothing is blocking port 80, just made a clean install.

I do not want to put wamp to online mode, i want it to be Offline, but at the same time using all of it's functionalities like in previous versions of Wamp.

Thanks for suggestions and tips in advance.

I clicked on the WAMP icon, Apache > Alias Directories > localhost/phpmyadmin > Edit alias, and change Allow from to Allow from all

For localhost, click on the WAMP icon, Apache > httpd.conf. Look for this line

#   onlineoffline tag - don't remove
Order Deny,Allow
Deny from all
Allow from

change to

#   onlineoffline tag - don't remove
Order Deny,Allow
Deny from all
Allow from all
