Cannot get to phpAdmin
Posted by: aargus07 (

I'm new to WAMP. Installed on local machine in WinXP and
all went well except when I try to run phpMyAdmin it
takes me to a IIS page instead. It's obvious that IIS
is set as the localhost page and not the php... page.
I do not know how to correct this so that the WAMP
goes to the localhost it is looking for.

IIS and Apache/Wamp are both web server and might conflict in some way, so you have to disable IIS in order for Wamp to work

Disable IIS in Vista/Win7:

Control Panel, Uninstall Programs, Turn Widows Features On or Off, uncheck Internet Information Services

Disable IIS in XP:

Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs, Add/Remove Windows Components, uncheck Internet Information Services (IIS)

Restart computer, then restart Wamp

Also, open file hosts in folder C:\WINDOWS\System32\drivers\etc and make sure you have only this line and nothing else localhost
