    Hi all,

    I was trying wamp server as a change from XAMPP to see what it was like. I ran the .exe installed as Full Admin Rights, given the wampserver folder full admin rights etc.. but when I run it on my wiiu screen it says something like> forbidden, you do not have permission to access. Has anyone come across this before on an EU WiiU, with an answer to it?. I have tried googling the answer and it mentions about changing this in the file:-

    <Directory "f:/Projects/myproject/www/">
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
    AllowOverride all
    Require all granted

    </Directory>

    which I have done but its still the same. It runs fine on Google Chrome and my explorer on my desktop but not on my wiiu gamepad screen. Can anyone help with this at all? i'm running Windows 8 on the PC if that helps. Also I have tried both the 32 & 64bit packages and both the same problems. Port 80 is open as well I have forwarded all ports.

    The access to your Apache server probably is forbidden from addresses other than 127.0.0.1 (your localhost) in httpd.conf (Apache's config file). Take a look to be sure.

    What line do I look at in the httpd.conf file. I don't know what I am looking for or changing it to apart from my pc ip address.

    Is it this bit to change:-
    #Listen 12.34.56.78:80
    Listen 0.0.0.0:80
    Listen [::0]:80

    Try to change this:
    To this:
    About your Listen, you can set "Listen 80", to let it listen simply to default HTTP port 80, or, set there your LAN IP with the default HTTP port (or the one you commonly use), i.e. 192.168.1.101:80.

    Could not solve the issue at all I had to go back to XAMPP.

    Well, if you want to 'learn' what really was wrong with WAMP, make a copy of your XAMPP http.conf and try WAMP again. Compare the 2 http.conf files (the bkp from XAMPP and the new from WAMP) and try to understand which difference between those files are crucial to your system. I've used WAMP, XAMPP and EasyPHP before, but the one I really liked was AMPPS.

    Odd, WAMP worked perfectly for me out of the box.
    Not sure how to solve that issue.

    Besides the IP and port to Listen and the rules to allow and deny certain address from reaching the apache server, the only other thing that we should bother with is the firewall. But since he told us that XAMPP worked, I dont know why WAMP properly configured wouldnt... anyway, maybe XAMPP autolists the 80 port permission on our firewalls and WAMP doesnt. It is a thing that I'm not sure, since I always used to pre-config my system before installing something that will certainly need a portforward or different firewall rules.
