Cannot get wamp 2.5 working online

I have been digging here and on the internet trying to get my php site working for last couple days.

It works fine from localhost, http:\\localhost, and http:\\127.0.0.1
also works fine from any computer on my network via http:\\internal network ip of server.

Version of Operating system? Windows vista x64

Version of Wamp Server installed? 2.5 64 bit
Version of Apache you are running? 2.4.9
Version of MySQL you are running? 5.6.17
Version of PHP you are running? 5.5.12

What colour is your WampManager icon? green

host file in windows contains below

127.0.0.1 localhost
::1 localhost

have done nothing with virtual host my site is within the www directory of wamp.

when i try connect by internet ip explorer just states cannot display webpage
diagnose connection says it is online but to check my config of firewall
firewall is set to accept ports 80 and 443 from all connections
disabling firewall and reboot changes nothing.

no other firewall other than windows firewall on the server pc

Have checked my port forwarding on router more times than I care to count it is being sent to correct internal ip.

What am I overlooking?

Are you trying to test this from inside your local network?

If so that probably wont work as most consumer routers do not have 'loopback' enabled.


Try testing it from next door or a friends house, anywhere outside your internal network.


Also check that the wampmanager icon reports 'server Online'
then also check httpd.conf for this line, it should read like this if you want to allow access from the internet

# onlineoffline tag - don't remove

i am trying to access it via http within local network

router is a linksys wrt54g which calls loopback "Filter Internet NAT Redirection" according to linksys forum leaving unchecked (which mine is) allows loopback.

does not work from freinds house, server (at home) is on/green , local host displays fine (at home) both before and after visiting friend.

hovering mouse over wamp icon in tray states "server online"

the Require all granted command is in httpd.conf, has been since I started digging on this issue and saw it as a suggested fix in other posts on this forum.

Do you see anything in the Apache error log saying it has rejected access fro the IP you are testing access from. If not then the connection is not getting as far as Apache, so its something else in the chain.

tried accessing at 19:20 by ip address nothing hit error log from attempt

disabled firewall tried again at 19:25 by ip address again nothing hit error log from that attempt.

Will reset router to factory defaults and see if that changes anything.

update router reset changed nothing

no errors in access log referring to any ip
so its not getting to apache.

I Had this same issue, My OS is 8.1 x64

All I needed to do was:

wampmanager -> Apache -> Version -> now click on the Apache version number menu.

this forced a windows allow Apache access conformation box.

As soon as I gave Apache run access my problem was fix.

if this doesn't work since your on VISTA try restarting wampmanger and run as "admin"

in apache version it says 2.4.9 when I left click it restarts apache when i right click nothing, no menu pops up.
or am I looking in wrong place for version # menu?

I did try running as admin no change.


Also noticed while digging for the menu
in apache modules, auth_form_module and cache_socache_module have triangles with exclamation marks in them.

left clicking on cache_socache reboots apache but does not fix it.
left clicking auth_form throws a access violation error in wampmanager.exe address is 0043AC36 refers to reading of address 636F5F77 also does not fix it. access violation error does not happen every time I click only after rebooting wampserver.

do not know if above has anything to do with my issue but just in case.
