In this guide for WAMP, we will show you how to install and setup outside access for WAMPSERVER. This guide is good when you combine with Setup Virtual Hosts guide which is posted on the Guides Menu.
Many thanks for publishing this particular write-up, I used to be trying to find it everywhere plus simply found a sensible quantity of tips here.
Good write-up, but it doesn’t seem to work with my router ip, any hints?
Some routers don’t support NAT loop back so have to check outside LAN or buy Netgear or Dlink routers
I am getting the 403 access forbiddden error when I try to access the php files in the subfolder www/libr/userf. I have changed the permissions of the folder to full control for all users.Still, I get the error.
ABHISHEK KUMAR, where did you try to access from? Also, make sure your project folder does not contain .htaccess file that limit the access
Great post. Thanks for the nice read
Great stuff man, come and visit my site
great stuff man …
thanks a bunch
Hello, firstly thank you very much for the tutorial, it is very useful but I think that my router does not support a loopback ip, could I use a simple switch instead of a router?
Adam, switch or hub will NOT forward your IP and thus will not work for your WAMP. If your router does not support loopback, simply buy another one since most routers are very cheap nowadays; recommend Netgear
I don’t have the option to forward ports due to my illegal ISP.(they give shared connection)
Is there anyway to put my localhost online?
isonuZ, can you use router?
I have downloaded wamp, as per your guilde set up lan and world wide accesss on wamp I am not able to add tcp port 80 to my dlink router. However it accept udp port 80. What could be the reason? is the isp should have block tcp port 80?. If I use udp port 80 what difference it will make to access my website. Please note I am making my laptop as my own webhost and have domain name from godaddy.
