Wampserver installation, from install, the wampserver manager runs and the 'W' in tray is green, update the config files and Wampserver no longer works.
Posted on 2013-11-24
I have installed Visual Studio 2012.
I downloaded wampserver(ws) and installed it.
When the ws installation finished the ws manager runs and the 'W' in the tray turns green.
I update the php.ini and httpd,conf with these amendments
1 Open php.ini in Notepad
2 Search for doc_root
3 Set doc_root to:-
doc_root = "C:\wamp\bin\apache\apache2..4.2\htdocs"
4 set extension_dir to:-
5 set mysqli values
6 set session.save_path
session.save_path = "C:\Windows\Temp"
7 Save and close php.ini
8 Run Notepad as administrator
Navigate to C:\wamp\bin\apache\apache2.4.2\conf\httpd.conf
DirectoryIndex index.php index.php3 index.html index.htm
9 Goto end of httpd.conf
Add these lines
LoadModule php5_module "C:/wamp/bin/php/php5.4.3/php5apache2_4.dll"
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
I run the ws manager and the 'W' in the tray is orange.
I have undone the above and the 'W' is still orange.
I am having trouble getting localhost to work, I get a message saying the file can't be displayed.
I have installed Visual Studio 2012 and VC++ 2012 runtimes from AVG and ws recommends the installation of VC++ 2010 runtimes I have installed those as well.
ws won't work
I am on Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1
I am using a Sony laptop with i5 processor.
I would be grateful if anybody could help
Thanks in anticipation of your help
