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

Usually I would manually set up Apache and PHP but this time I thought I would go for the WAMP alternative.

I've set up WAMP and it's working perfectly fine on the host machine.

If I try and access the WAMP server from another machine on the same network (same subnet too: 192.168.1.*) I get this message:


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

I have been online and gone through steps. I have changed Allow from to Allow from all and it's still not working.

Is there anything else I can try? Thanks.

I basically shut down WAMP, restarted the server and then ran WAMP again on startup. It seems that the settings got enforced after the reboot. This has fixed the issue I can now access my WAMP server from other machines.

Every change you make in the config-file has to be followed by restartin the service in order for it to be enforced. –  Sandokan Dec 5 '12 at 9:24
