Yes, I ignored the Malwarebytes warning and ran the check for VC++ packages, which told me that all the packages on my system are out of date. I still need to know a reliable source where I can download the current versions. I found Microsoft's site, and a site called TechPowerUp, which both claim to support latest supported Visual C++ redistributables. Is one or the other recommended?

I'm trying to set up a local web server on a Windows 10 64-bit laptop. I haven't done this in over 10 years. My ultimate goal is to install a Joomla 3.10.11 site (https://rockridgencpc.com) locally so I can rebuild it in Joomla 4.x with a new theme, because the theme I'm using in Joomla 3.10 isn't supported on Joomla 4. I've downloaded the installer for WampServer 3.3.0 X64. My C: drive is

I have the same problem, but when I clicked on the link for the tool to check VC++ packages installed, I got a warning from Malwarebytes about, well, potential malware. Do you have a way to get to the link that doesn't threaten infecting my laptop? At the moment I don't have Wampserver, Visual Studio, or anything else related to Wampserver except the install executable for v. 3.3.0, on my Windo

What is this virtual host business? I've put WordPress sites on WAMP before - but that was an earlier version of WAMP which, frankly, was much better behaved. I'm now in the situation where you say it's UpDraft Plus' fault and Updraft says it's your fault, and I'm about to go try XAMPP and BackupBuddy.

I'm running Wampserver 2.2E 64-bit on Windows 7 Pro 64-bit. I just used UpdraftPlus to copy a WordPress 3.9 site and move it to a test site on my laptop. The migration said it completed without errors but - when I try to load any page in the site, Wamp offers to save a file instead of displaying the page. Any idea what is going on?? Before I did the migration I had loaded a basic WordPres

I've NOW downloaded the thread safe version. I didn't know what "nts" stood for, nobody explained it; and the first Andiya.com page I saw only had one version for 5.3.13. I did more searching later and found a link on StackOverflow which led to an Andiya page with TWO 5.3.13 curl replacements, and when I downloaded the other - which you've just explained was the "thread safe"

I was very hopeful when I read the thread as I'm having exactly the same problem - curl shows enabled in the php extensions and is uncommented in php.ini (all 3 of them) but it doesn't show in phpinfo() and it never loads. I have a Windows 7 Pro 64 bit system running WampServer 2.2E 64 bit with PHP 5.3.13, Apache 2.2.22, mySQL 5.5.64. As long as I'm running the PHP DLL that came with my Wamp

I've removed that statement from the hosts file with no visible effect on page loading. The stop watch running on my current try at loading this page just passed 3 minutes 25 seconds. The page finally loaded some time after 5 minutes. As best I can tell, my configuration.php is correct and my database is correct. I should probably say that because I have IIS 7.5 also hosting test web si

I have Wampserver 2.2 64 bit installed on Win7Pro 64 bit on my laptop. The localhost page comes right up. phpMyAdmin comes right up and I can manipulate the database. But I can't load the front page of the web site I'm trying to build. The site is a copy of a Joomla 1.5 site which is working in production. I copied the files over and installed the database into a database I created with the

I've installed WampServer 2.2 on Win7 Pro 64 bit, on my Lenovo laptop. I use it for development copies of web sites, including a Joomla 1.5 site which I want to upgrade to Joomla 3. I can't get the Joomla 1.5 site to come up, even though I've followed all the procedures I wrote down which worked last time (including instructions from Joomla doc).

Since nobody seems to be responding to my post, it's a good thing I solved this myself. This is for someone else who may have the same problem: running Wampserver 2.2E on a system where port 80 is owned by IIS. I had changed the httpd.conf, and the Apache log clearly showed it listening on port 8080; I could bring up the Wampserver home page by hand typing localhost:8080 in the browser. B

I had an idea, and I got rid of the Apache error by changing the Apache version from 2.2.3 back to 2.2.22 which came with the set. This means the error was caused by the Apache 2.2.3 download I added, which is annoying, but I can work with what I have. I still can't bring up localhost:8080, even though the icon is green. I checked httpd.conf and both Listen and ServerName are set to localhos

I have a laptop that I use to run both WampServer and IIS 7. For ease of use, I configure WampServer to use localhost:8080. The laptop runs win7 Pro 64- bit. Because it's new, I had to download WampServer again, and I downloaded version 2.2E 64 bit. I've since upgraded Apache from 2.2.22 to 2.2.3. I've been unable to get Apache to work, and I found this error message in the Windows Event V

It's actually simpler than you describe. Right now I have NO mysql databases live on the laptop. I was waiting to install test sites until I got the platform built. I'll give your process a try, thanks for the tip. But as I investigated everything, I find that my sites run on slightly different versions of ALL the software, none of which are available as add-ons: Apache - 2.2.22 ; PHP -

After buying a new laptop I'm rebuilding my WampServer install. I had an older version of WampServer, but I've just installed WampServer 2.2E 64 bit. My laptop runs Windows 7 Professional 64 bit. I use WampServer to run test versions of web sites I support. I support 2 web sites which currently run on mySQL 5.0.91. I'd like to be able to install the same version of everything on the WampSe

Thanks for the links, especially on backup and setting up db accounts. You're quite right that now is NOT the time to back up! (And I KNOW better than this, too!) I'm a little disturbed by the suggestion that I need to uninstall my firewall and antivirus before reinstalling wamp - surely turning them off would be enough?? I'm reasonably sure I just installed the thing, last time, without do

Thanks for the fast response, yfastud. Actually, there was nothing wrong with the password, I could log in with it manually. However, this has all become moot, because I installed the Wampserver patch, and it's corrupted my whole installation, and unless the guy who supports it can come up with a solution, I'll probably have to uninstall the whole system and reinstall. At which point I HOPE

This was working back in mid-May and now that I'm back from vacation, it's not. I have Wampserver ver. 2.0 installed on a Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit laptop. Back in May when I clicked on phpMyAdmin from the menu it came up (after I typed in the non-standard port I use, another story which I've fixed). Now I get a login page and this error: phpMyAdmin was unable to read your configuration fil

I'm having the exact same problem as Vibs - Wamp is listening on port 8080. I can get to everything fine by typing the address including the :8080, but I can't use the links in the Wamp menu because they default to port 80. This is moderately inconvenient. From the dates on this thread it doesn't look as though there is a solution right now, but if one appears, I'd like to get it also.

I have Wampserver 2.0 installed on a Vista Home Premium laptop, and I want to put up a Drupal installation. I need to create a database, with a userid and password, before I run the Drupal installer. I've figured out how to bring up SQLiteManager and I think I know how to create the database - but what do I do about the userid and password?? I don't see that anywhere in the my.ini file and and
