Hi guys!

Need urgent help. Just installed correctly Wamp on Windows 10, but it shows the green icon and Server Offline, while All Services Working.

How can I solve this issue?

I have seen Skype could give problems regarding the door 80, but I am disconnected from Skype.

Thanks in advance for helping.

Cheers,

Nicola

Well, not so normal. It would be normal if the icon was green and server Online, so I can access to Wordpress admin. Since it's offline, I can access localhost to work on my Wordpress site

Hi,

First of all, you did not answer the questions asked. If you had answered it you would have seen that your server is working correctly since you have access to localhost and PhpMyAdmin.

Secondly, when I say that this is normal, it is because it is the normal functioning of Wampserver which is, above all, a local development server, and the fact that it is noted Offline has absolutely nothing to do with Wordpress administration access.

If you do not access Wordpress administration, it is because you have not installed it in a VirtualHost, as with all hosts.
See The need for Virtual Host and Wampserver 3 - Create or add a VirtualHost

The Online/Offline status indication only EVER indicated that Apache would accept connections from either

OffLine = local machine only 
 - (for obvious security reasons, and as WAMPServer is primarily a single desk developer tool.
Online  = connection allowed from any ip address
Of course if your router had not been Port Forwarded then even if you were Online you were still only visible to ip addresses INSIDE your router.

Since WAMPServer 3 this menu has been intensionally disabled (not completely removed) because since WAMPServer now STRONGLY encourages the use of Virtual Hosts for each and every one of your projects the control of where Apache will accept connections from is now controlled from within the Virtual Host definition itself.

So basically the `Online/Offline` menus is no longer of any use, and should be ignored and left in its disabled state.
