Recently I have bought a new laptop and installed wamp server on new windows 8.And when I am trying to start wamp server, getting an error .
403 access forbidden.
After installing wamp server, sudden getting an error is quite unusual.
The reason of getting forbidden error is IPV6.By default, Windows 8 is an IPV6-first Operating System and by default, WAMP runs on IPV4 yet it is not configured to run on IPV6.that’s why conflict occurs and wamp server stop working.
So, here I come with the solution of this problem.It’s pretty simple.
Let’s see the steps
1.Go to the folder bin\apache\< apache_version >\conf\httpd.conf
2.Find the line “Listen 80” into this file.
3.you just need to replace with the below line.
That’s it.Hope this post will helpful for you, waiting for your responses.
