I am using WAMP 2.5 with local folder (localhost/websitename) setting. Every time I open WAMP (when internet is connected) it hangs my laptop for a number of minutes and the only option I have, is to stop all services and close WAMP.

  • I am using 32bit Windows 7 Ultimate SP1
  • Apache is installed as a 'service'
  • mod_rewrite is enabled in Apache
  • I am on WordPress 4.0
  • Using Simplicity theme
  • The page that hangs the WAMP have a GravityForms form
  • Do you have to launch your Wordpress site to make it hang or is it just launching WAMPserver itself that hangs the PC? – RiggsFolly Dec 9 '14 at 21:24
  • WordPress site. – Alam Dec 11 '14 at 1:16
  • Did you install WP on WAMPServer or is this a copy of a live site to your local machine? – RiggsFolly Dec 11 '14 at 11:13
  • Copy of a live site. – Alam Dec 11 '14 at 20:34
  • You probably have not copied it correctly. You cannot just copy a WP database. See the WP site here for assitance codex.wordpress.org/Running_a_Development_Copy_of_WordPress – RiggsFolly Dec 11 '14 at 22:29
