I am using WAMP which just crashed, it's showing weird language and nothing works.

I was using wamp5 which was working fine and then all of  a sudden I got the following when I try to go to local host from wamp menu. I installed the newer version of wamp but still same problem. I have attached a snapshot if that helps.
thanks much.

Are you seeing the php code instead of it executing?

If so, it is most likely that your apache config has gone haywire and no longer includes the

LoadModule for php

and/or the

AddType application/x-httpd-php php

Yea normally, when I click local host, it takes me to all the websites that I have in WWW folder. I switched to IE instead of firefox and it seems like working fine. But, just curious what is crashing firefox, I kind of too used to firefox. I have attached snapshots of the local host page on both, firefox and IE.
thanks much.

It looks like your wamp installation has errored out with the php.

I would suggest uninstalling wamp then browsing to the folder containing any wamp installations and deleting them.

Then reinstall wamp.

If that doesnt work download xampp:
- http://sourceforge.net/projects/xampp/
- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XAMPP

I did that already. I un-installed wamp5 and installed wamp 2.0, still have the same problem.
any other suggesions?
Did you delete all the files manually from the installation folders?

Did you try installing Xampp?
awarraicAuthor Commented:
I ran windows add/delete software and I just changed the wamp folder's name to wamp_old and did a fresh install. What is Xampp? I like wamp :)
Xampp is the same idea as wamp its a prepackaged apache mysql and php but its designed for all operating systems.

I posted details regarding it above - it should get you going soon.

Thanks much.
what was wrong with the response that you graded it a b?
awarraicAuthor Commented:
It's still not working. I re-installed it but still have same problem. So, issue is still there. I hope you feel better to get a B.
then why did you close it off... did you install xampp
