Hi,

Please start by reading TROUBLESHOOTING TIPS

And also WAMPServer 3 All you need to know


An orange icon means that either Apache OR MySQL has started, but not both. So now you need to work out which one has notr started

First find out which service has not started.
Using the wampmanager menus do :-

wampmananager -> Apache -> Service
If the Start/Resume Service menu item is Green and clickable, then Apache has not started

So look at the Apache error log

wampmanager -> Apache -> Apache error log

Then do

wampmananager -> MySQL -> Service
If the Start/Resume Service menu item is Green and clickable, then MySQL has not started

So look at the MySQL error log

wampmanager -> MySQL -> MySQL log

If either of these files does not exists, then the service failed before it could open these logs, so now you need to look at the Windows Event Viewer

Start -> Administrative Tools -> Event Viewer

And look in the

Windows Logs -> Application' section accessed from the menu on the left of the dialog for error messages from Apache and or MySQL.




If Apache is the service that is not running it is normally, but not always, because something else has captured port 80.

Now do,
Left click the wampmanager icon to reveal the menu-> Apache -> Service -> Test port 80
This will launch a command window and display some information about what, if anything is using port 80.

Whatever it is should be re-configured to not use port 80 or uninstalled if you are not using it.

**How to Configure SKYPE so it does not require port 80 or 443**

( This does not appear to be necessary on recent versions i.e. after march 2014 )

Run SKYPE
then using the menus do this:
Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Connection
Un-Check the checkbox next to 'Use port 80 and 443 as alternatives for incomming connections'
Now restart SKYPE for these changes to take effect.

If you are running Windows 8 SKYPE comes as a tiled app and this cannot ( as yet ) be configured in this way.
However if you uninstall the SKYPE app and install SKYPE in the old way, you can reconfigure it, and it works just as well.

You have to delete all that. It is not the role of the hosts file to perform url filtering.
The only two lines that must exist are:
127.0.0.1 localhost
::1 localhost
And nothing else until you create a VirtualHost
