I am brand new to web development...and getting WAMPServer running is a barrier no amount of Googling has helped solve.
When I install WAMPServer it works fine. When I try to add local domain names, it goes wrong. Can anyone tell me why?
Things I have tried.
I have removed the # from
'# Include conf/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf'
Then, in C:/wamp/bin/apache/Apache2.2.22/conf/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf I added
< Directory C:/WAMPprojects>
Allow from all
< VirtualHost *:80>
When I enter my.testsite into the address bar, I expect to see the content of the index.html page that’s in the Hermes folder.
After a fresh install of WAMP where the taskbar icon turns green, I Have made these changes and every time I restart WAMP Server it stops at orange.
Therefore I have also tried:
- Turning off Skype
- Changing Skype settings so it does not listen at port 80 (Tools>Options>Advanced>Connection>Use port 80 and 443 as alternatives for incoming connections. Untick.)
- Checking nothing else is listening at port 80
- Changing the port to 8080
- Changing the port to a different number
- Adding ::1 to hosts
I cannot determine what’s going on in the Apache error log.
I am on Windows XP (SP3) and Apache 2.2.22 Is it a case of incompatibility or can it be fixed?
Thank you very much in advance if anyone can give me a clue on this - I've been stuck for months now.
