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 (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.

  • 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.
