Browsers not completing page load for files on localhost

I'm running WAMP 2.0 with Joomla 1.1.5 and when I navigate through a website the page will load but not completely.

e.g. in the administration area I see the page but the browser never completes the load and as a result I can't access the menus.


e.g. on front end web page wont load unless I click resepctive link twice.

Anyone have any ideas as to how I can setup WAMP to fully load web pages?

First at all check the logfiles to see what's going on!

Locate the WAMP TrayIcon and click "Apache -> Apache Error Log" in the menu. Then do the same with the PHP Log and MySQL log.

You should see what's wrong with your configuration.

The apache error log has thousands of errors like this:

[error] (OS 6)The handle is invalid.  : Child 4356: Encountered too many errors accepting client connections. Possible causes: Unknown. Try using the Win32DisableAcceptEx directive.

What should I do? I notice my PHP version is 5.3, should I get 5.2.5 like you've suggested?

I've installed 5.2.5 and I still have the same problem, need to refresh or click link 2 or 3 times for the page to load properly.... any suggestions?

I'm sorry I need more help on this. How do I see what is wrong with my installation?
Hi Tony,

There are some recommendation found on the web, and even Apache docs website on this issue.

In brief, locate your apache configuration (default in "C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\conf\httpd.conf"), and add the line


Save the config, and restart (or start) apache.
