Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have just installed WampServer on my Windows 7. When I type my IP address in the address line of my browser I see:


You don't have permission to access / on this server.

Can anybody help me to start. In my "c:\wamp\www\" directory I found "index.php". Why server does not display it to my browser?

EDIT: I could see a page if I put "http://localhost/" in the address line. But why I cannot use my IP? And how other computer can access my web server?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

This question is better suited to either Super User or Server Fault, but at the moment I can't decide which. –  ChrisF Feb 25 '10 at 12:56

Like skilldrick said you need to open port 80 on your firewall and if you're behind a router you must forward port 80 to your network-ip. see http://www.portforward.com
