what do you see when you type "localhost" into IE on the server?

Then Apache is not running - there should be a little wamp icon in your system tray, right click on it and select "restart all services" - then make sure they are all running. Most common problem is that IIS is already running on the machine and thus uses port 80

Do you have a NIC card Driver installed, already Network connected ???

Immediate Solution:-
Or else best way to solve it is to install Microsoft loopback adapter

> control panel
> add hardware
> next
> "Yes I have connected the hardware"
> (Scroll to bottom) Add a new hardware device
> Install the hardware that I manually select from a list (Advanced)
> Network Adapters
> Select Microsoft on the left
> Microsoft Loopback adapter on the right
> Next
> Next

I hope this help and allows you to see the localhost after this

All the little red crosses accross your network adapters in your systray (next the time) on your screenshots shows that your LAN cards are not configured, or does not have the drivers installed. This may prevent you from "browsing" to your own machine if you do not have a "loopback" device installed ( which is basically a "dummy" network card that loops back on itself)

Do you really have 4 LAN cards in the server? Try to configure at least one of them by installing the correct drivers and assigning an IP address to it (like 192.168.0.1 / 255.255.255.0)

i understand the main idea but cannot understand what it got to do with wamp server...
is that not have to work offline too?

sasha85Author Commented:
i don't use those lan's, if that will solve the problem than please tell me how to disable them?

how can i install that loopback" device?
0
psimationCommented:
I don't think that is your problem - I just tested it - I installed wamp2 on my vista pc, disabled my lan card, and I could still browse to the default wamp page on localhost...

Since you are on Server2003 - the problem may be more with permissions - are you installing wamp2 as administrator?

I really cannot think why u having trouble - I installed wamp myself on Vista, XP and 2003 just like you did and it works perfectly each time.

maybe you should try posting on the wamp support forums?

sasha85Author Commented:
can it be some thing with my network connections?
how can i check if it doing the loop back?
how i can check if my user set as admin?

psimationCommented:
I don;t think your network is to blame for this, so don;t worry about the "loop-back" it should be there by default.

Just log-off and make sure when you log in you do so as administrator - if you found that your users were different, then try re-installing as administrator.

sasha85Author Commented:
nope...i got only one user=admin...

psimationCommented:
I'm stumped, sorry - I really don;t understand why u having such issues. Do you have another PC, maybe XP, where you can just do a test install and make sure you can get it running there? It should have the same steps involved, then you can just trace your steps back on the 2003 server...

i am installing mediawiki...
it asked me for user name and password for mysql..

i want to change the default wamp pass and username for mysql
(security reason)
and load them to the media wiki installation...

i checked the phpmyadmin, but i am kind of afraid to change there the username and the password
it may or may not effect on all wamp...i don;t know

what do i need to do?

psimationCommented:
I'm not sure if the Windows version of MySQL also has the mysqladmin command, but if it does, then that is the tool to use to change root passwords:

mysqladmin -u root password NEWPASSWORD (for a NEW password , ie, if you never did this before)

mysqladmin -u root -p oldpassword newpass (to CHANGE password)

sasha85Author Commented:
i played phpmyadmin a while and set a neww password for the root

now i got
"access denied for user 'root'@localhost'
using - #1045
password: no


it told me to go to config.inc.php and to change the passwords and usernames...
i  messed it all up and now i don't know what to do
0
psimationCommented:
reset password with mysqladmin as per my previous post, then edit config.inc.php in phpmyadmin folder - set authentication typ to "http" and only put "root" in the username, no password - it will make a pop-up window where you can then enter "root" and your password as set previously

sasha85Author Commented:
i don't understand you...can you be more specific?

i am now using phpmyadmin and not mysql admin...

sasha85Author Commented:
to late:)
i solved that one:)


i got now a new problem with mail settings...

when user trying to register
the media wiki shows:

"failed to connect to mailserver at "localhost" port 25
verify your smtp and smtp_port setting in php.ini() or use_ini_set

as a matter of fact i don;t have any idea where is set the mail and port...
