Steps to set up a server:

  1. Download: Go to https://www.wampserver.com/en/ and you are going to see as below image. there’re 2 buttons; one is 64 bits and second is 32 bits.
    choose the one that support with your computer.

    wamp download location
    wamp warning
    wamp warning

    then you see from step by step.

  2. Configuration: The color of the symbol corresponds to the status the server is in:
    • Red Can mean the WAMP server is temporarily deactivated or there is some sort of hindrance that is not allowing it to work.
    • Orange Can mean it is idle or, like red, there is something that didn’t get installed properly.
      if you have this problem, you can check your wamp port because it may duplicate port 80 with your other project.
      solve: go to change default port 80 to another one.


      open file httpd.conf and edit Listen 80 to your requirement
      example: http://localhost/ -> localhost:8080

    • Green The server is active and ready to use.
