This is for a friend of mine. When he installed WAMP server, it installed perfectly. And then when he goes to http://localhost there is only 1 message that is displayed in the browser which is

It Works!

It does not display the WAMP homepage at all ! He has also reintalled WAMP server like a bazillion times, but with no success, it always gives him that It works! message. Has anybody else here encountered the same situation? And it is not the Port 80 problem, i checked. Please reply soon as he is not able to do his project at home because of this.

It isnt displaying the WAMP homepage :( – user35107 Feb 17 '10 at 3:25
dude, that is the wamp home page – Joel Coel Feb 17 '10 at 4:12
No. He's not able to navigate to any of his projects @.@ Its a plain blank page with "It works!" written in it :( – user35107 Feb 17 '10 at 16:56

Sounds to me like it works.

That is Apache's default message after a successful install. It is usually a single HTML file in the htdocs folder.

What are you expecting to see?

So far, I don't see this as a problem.
