Hey ! I have installed Wamp after quite a few years... Seems i registered here a decade ago.
I am having trouble putting wamp online and have it accessible by IP. All i find is related to virtual hosts, but i simply want to put it up and access by IP. Not tie it to any domains. Could i please get some help? Thanks !

I tried editing http-vhosts.conf and changed Require local to Require all granted but it did nothing.

PS: I see wampserver.com is inaccessible.

Hi,

Take a look at this, on StackOverflow it was aimed at accessing the server from a phoen but it would work from any device.

Why did they make it so difficult and tweaky to access wamp from the local computer? Wamp used to be accessible by IP out of the box.

And as such, those beginners that had no real idea what they were doing or what they were risking often opened up their system inadvertantly to the risk of being hacked

I was aware of the risks. At the moment i only needed a fast way to share files.
Either way, you should provide an option to make this easier to the user. I looked and there is no straightforward solution to enable IP access. Ill leave it alone for now. Thanks..
