standard internet access to WAMP that as only 1 web site

I have installed wampserver3.1.0_x64.exe succesfully with all VC 9-10-11-12-13-14-15-17.
I want to make it accessible through the internet
I have followed all the answers but they are for WAMP 2.5
There is only one for WAMP 3 and none for WAMP 3.1
The httpd.conf and conf files really arent the same
Can anything recent be made available?
I have always used Apache with NT 4- Win 2k- Win XP. It was simple
Now I had to change to Win 7 64 bits because the hardware is only compatible with it
Can anyone help

Hi

All the same rule apply except that now you need to look at `\wamp\bin\apache\apache2.4.xx\conf\extra\httpd-vhosts.cnf`

Of course you should create a Virtual Host for each of your sites

Also a little more information about what you have done would help!

And you should also know that running a live server from a Windows Desktop OS is not a sensible idea as therer is a limit to the number of remote connections (30) so if more than a few people connect at the same time, they will all get a very bad experience.

Once It works enough I will buy some space on an official server. Although I need to make it work for a few people anyway. I have great speed on my connection.
WAMP and all VC are installed. Firewall exception is done. Cant find where listen is and or how to do it.
Cant find deny allow. Cant find how to set directory. cant find how to set web name or static address. etc... etc...
Can access localhost with all my site design but nothing with any IP.

Hi,

Start by reading this post THE NEED for VIRTUAL HOSTS

Then look at `portforwarding.com`, they may even have instruction for your exact router if you are lucky, but they will definitely explain to you what Port Forwarding is..

The Question implies there will be only one site.
Is there a real reason to use this virtual host outside of being able to access your web site by a name in the browser?
This does not give it access through the internet.
The worst part of all this is I can use Apache as a web server but with WAMP the condition statements are really not clear. I would like to use PHP and MySql other then testing my site.
How do I get standard access from the internet to a site hosted by WAMP?

Please bear in mind that WAMPServer is primarily a development tool and NOT intended to be used to run live sites.

You can do that but you do so at your own risk.

I have WAMP 3.1.
There is no directions on how to set Wamp 3.1 to be accessed by internet. Not to modify it. Just look at it. All the *.conf files are different.
Can anyone explain how to do it.
I get it there are risks.
Still how do you do it?

Edit httpd-vhosts.conf use the menus to edit this file Apache->httpd-vhost.conf

Find your Virtual Host in that file and amend this line from

Require local

To

Require all granted
