    I was searching the internet for a solution to changing the default startup for MySQL console to ask for the username and password when I came across the following forum

    A solution was sent by [yfastud (—.cable.mindspring.com) ] to the email of the person who had posted the question…

    Could you help me on me quest. Thanks

      Robert Andrews, that solution is now in this guide:
      Setup Password
      When you’re following this guide, eventually you will come to this step:
      “…After wamp restart, left click on wamp tray icon to access Main Menu and select phpMyAdmin to pop up the Login page for phpMyAdmin, which you can login with user…”

      Dolan, if using Skype, go to Tools->Options->Advanced->Connection and uncheck the box “Use 80 and 443 as alternatives for incoming connections”. Restart Skype after WAMP. Now you will be able to use both programs at the same time w/o problems.

      Dolan, try different browser to see if you have the same issue; then, we go from there 🙂

    I have battled this for 2 weeks. searching the web and no results.


    vhosts does not work.

    Only change to httpd.conf is enable
    Include conf/extra/httpd-autoindex.conf

    DocumentRoot “g:/wamp/www”
    ServerAlias Localhost

    DocumentRoot “g:/skip”
    ServerName skip.localhost
    ServerAlias skip
    errorLog “g:/skip/logs/skip-error.log”
    CustomLog “g:/skip/logs/skip-access.log”common
    # Options Includes Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
    # AllowOverride all
    # Deny from all
    # Allow from skip

    http://skip/ goes out to the web and loads skip.com Not my website.

    Please save my sanity.

      The tags don’t show.
      I forgot to include to close the block.

      boB, where is that G: drive? Is it a partition/hard drive in your WAMP computer?

    • January 17, 2012 at 9:00 pm

      First thing first, you have to uninstall xampp, its folder and also its registries. Next, try to search and delete any php.ini, my.ini, my.cnf, httpd.conf file outside wamp folder. If it doesn’t resolve the issue, post back here and we will try something else 😉

      I have to… we need to find a exact step by step by step guide,and I mean step BY STEP, LOL.

    • January 16, 2012 at 7:55 pm

      gg, if you don’t post detail error then it’s not easy to help

    • June 26, 2012 at 3:10 pm

      AESTAN tray error is due to you not having a redistributable package installed.

      Go to http://www.wampserver.com/en
      details of required redistributable package required in order to see AESTAN tray can be seen when you go to the download section (this is a recent change to the WAMPSERVER site). You will be pointed to either of the follwoing 2 installs at Microsoft:



      The redistributable needs to be installed before WAMP, just to make it easy when WAMP starts up on the system tray.
