    WAMP in vista not working

    hi all WAMP in vista was not working... i was lookign for soultions but could not find it... i tried a lot and found out that it was my antivirous which was blocking port 80, 8080 etc.

    so if your WAMP not working in vista pls check that http is not blocked by your antivirous. check in http blocking in antivirous and disable block 80, 8080and it will work.

    I managed last night and wanted to share with you all.

    One problem I found was that putting WAMP in the startup folder caused problems with UAC on - it would block it from starting up.

    The solution is to go to the Services control panel, and enable automatic startup for the 'wampapache' and 'wampmysql' services. This will start the server on startup. You don't get the icon in the tray, but if you need that in order to change settings or anything, you can start it manually.
