WAMP Apache resolves to localhost but not IP address

Hi,

I'm running WAMP 2.4 on a Win 7 machine and while it resolves to localhost if I type the IP address into the browser I get 404 not found.

I also can't see Apache from other machines on the LAN although when I scan the port it shows:

HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found..Date: Wed, 30 Oct 2013 12:08:19 GMT..Server: Apache/2.4.4 (Win32) PHP/5.4.16..Connection: close..Conten

So it's definitely spotting Apache on 80

In my http.conf I've added "Allow from all" to

DocumentRoot "e:/wamp/www"
<Directory "e:/wamp/www">
 
/~~~~~
</Directory>

and Apache is listening on 80 rather than a specific IP.

My Windows Firewall is off.

Have I missed anything really basic?


Thanks.

Ok...


I've just change my VirtualHost setting from:

# Digital Essence Vhost configurations
<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerAdmin localhost.admin
    DocumentRoot "E:\wamp\www"
    ServerName localhost
</VirtualHost>

to

# Digital Essence Vhost configurations
<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerAdmin localhost.admin
    DocumentRoot "E:\wamp\www"
    ServerName 192.168.19.15
</VirtualHost>

and I can now see it both locally and on the lan.

Have you got a:

Listen 80

or:

Listen 192.168.19.15:80

entry outside of the Virtual host definitions?

If not add one and restart Apache.

Hi,

I managed to fix this but can't remember how as it's been more than a few weeks and my goldfish brain has a terrible memory.

I'm going to award you the points anyway as you took the time to reply which I appreciate.
