WAMP works for all but one - a real puzzler!

1. Windows 10 Pro version 1607 64-bit
2. WampServer 3.0.4 64-bit
3. Apache 2.4.18
4. PHP 5.6.19
5. MySQL 5.7.11
6. Green WampServer icon
7. 127.0.0.1 locahlhost
::1 localhost
8. Yes
8a. It's a bad idea to add localhost in the url of launching projects. It is best to define VirtualHost in
wamp/bin/apache/apache2.4.18/conf/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf
file and not add localhost in the url.
9. Yes
10. Will do.
11. BitDefender Total Security 2016
12. C:\Users\prospurring\Documents\wamp64\
13. No virtual hosts

Hi there! I know just enough about WampServer to be dangerous, but not enough to troubleshoot it well.

I have WampServer set up on my machine, with SEVERAL WordPress installations. I can access all of them but one. And I can't figure out why.

It is set up just the same as all the others. But, when I try to access it, it says: "This site can't be reached. The connection was reset. Try: (a) Checking the connection; (b) Checking the proxy and the firewall; (c) Running Windows Network Diagnostics. ERR_CONNECTION_RESET."

There are no errors in the Apache access log, Apache error log, PHP error log, or MySQL log.

I verified in phpMyAdmin that the address in the options table is what I think the address is. I have double- triple- and quadruple- checked the spelling. I've tried using localhost/ 127.0.0.1/ etc. I've tried multiple browsers. All to no avail.

It truly has me stumped because I am able to successfully access 13 others set up the exact same way.

And when I first set it up, it worked fine. Later, I shut down WampServer, turned off my computer, and did other things. When I came back, turned on my computer, and turned on WampServer, it won't load anymore.

I'm using the correct address for it. Everything is there within the folders and MySQL that should be there.

(P.S. I didn't know about 8a - about not using localhost in the URL, but that's in the MySQL database now - and for all the others that are working. I've already learned something for next time.)

Does anyone have an idea of what might be causing this?

It has me stumped! I'd be extremely grateful for the help!
Thank you!

Hi

Sorry to hear this, but if you read back what you have given us to wprk with, well its not much.

Everything else works but this one is really not giving us anything solid to work with.

Um ... yeah. That's my problem, too.
All 13 other WordPress installs on localhost work.
This one DID work, and now it doesn't.

I didn't change anything about my setup, I didn't move any files, there were no Windows updates to my knowledge, and I didn't improperly shut down without stopping WampServer. It happens no matter what browser I use. So it's not some cookie or something browser specific.

Like you, I've got nothing. I'm completely stumped.

What I am HOPING is that someone out there has had something similar happen to them and that they figured out the tricky little detail that might be behind it all. And might be willing to share it here.

It sounds like some strange DNS problem, but that's way beyond my pay grade.

Here is the content from my hosts file, as requested:

# Copyright (c) 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp.
#
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
#
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
#
# For example:
#
# 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
# 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host

# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
# 127.0.0.1 localhost
# ::1 localhost

127.0.0.1 localhost
::1 localhost

Hi,

> It sounds like some strange DNS problem
Where are the domain names of your 13 and more local sites?
If you want the local DNS to work correctly, you must declare in the hosts file the ServerName of your VirtualHost.

I don't have any virtual hosts.
I've been using WP-Migrate-DB-Pro to migrate from localhost to live.
