there is no Menu Item: Online/Offline (put Online/put Offline not visible)

Hello all. Please help.

I have just installed latest version of Wampserver. New version from official site.

But I don't see Menu Item: Online/Offline in "Right click-> Wamp Settings"
(There is no such item in the new version of settings.)

Accordingly, I cannot activate the appearance of the Put Online / Put Offline icon in the main menu.

Where in the latest version is the specified interface located?

This is necessary for me to access the server from the Internet. I have a static ip address. In previous versions of the wampserver, the above interface existed. And there were no problems with setting up access from the Internet.

Hi Sergio.
I just registered here myself and awaiting a touch of "Start Power" - I haven't yet installed any amp-server.
Though, I noticed you wrote "Right click-> Wamp Settings" - AND -I noticed the explanation at the Download:
[www.fileyogi.com]

{
With a LEFT-click on WampServer’s icon, you will be able to:

manage your Apache and MySQL services
switch online/offline (give access to everyone or only localhost)
install and switch Apache, MySQL and PHP releases
manage your servers settings
access your logs
access your settings files
create alias
}

Sorry if it was only a type-error - I didn't mean to offend you.

Hi,

The document you are referring to is dated Methuselah!

See : WAMPserver 3 - All you need to know

For your local sites you have to use VirtualHost as with all hosters.

Dear Maricha, thanks! This was possible in previous versions.
But In the new version, unfortunately, this is not available.

Otomatic ,hi!

I have read this manual.

And also read your answers to all questions. You give the identical answer to all the questions in stated forum. It is bad practice.

And I did not understand why in the new version 3.2.0 there is no way to select the activation of the Online / Offline menu item.
(I have all the latest C ++ libraries and I have configured virtual hosts.)



Methuselah lived and died many thousands of years ago (and manual too). He does not know about problems in the new version 3.2.0.

Hi Sergio,

Before we get into a war about this option being removed, can I check what you think this option did for you.
Then we can suggest the new and probably better way of doing what you are attempting to do.

Hi RiggsFolly , thanks for reply.

This option allowed me in previous versions of the vampserver to give access to the web server from the Internet with just one click of the mouse.

Just one action. What could be better?)



But in the new version wampserver this option was removed. It is very sad.

Hi,

Yup with just one click of the mouse you could give access to your whole WAMPServer environment.... including your WAMPSevrer home page, and you phpMyAdmin so everyone could fiddle with your databases smiling smiley

Now instead of that, you create a Virtual Host for each of your sites, meaning you can give access to One and only One of your sites and NOT anything else.

It still simple:

left click WAMPServer icon -> Apache -> httpd-vhosts.conf

This opens this file in the editor. You then go the the Virtual Host of your choise (one of many possibly) and change the line

Require local

To

Require all granted

Or if you know your clients IP address(s) and you want to be sure only they gain access to your system

Require ip 1.2.3.4
Require ip 1.2.3.5
Require ip 1.2.3.6


Save the file, and then restart Apache.


left click WAMPServer icon -> Apache -> Service Administration `wampapache64` -> Restart Service

I know this is so many more clicks, but for the extra security and Granular Control this gives, I feel it is well worth the extra effort involved.



Of course, dont forget to close access down again after testing is complete
