WAMP 403 Forbidden message on Windows 7

I have installed WAMP version 2.1 on my windows 7 machine. When i browse to localhost in my browser, the WAMP server page is visible.

But when I browse to my IP in my browser, I get the message


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


Any suggestions?

Answer

The access to your Apache server is forbidden from addresses other than 127.0.0.1 in httpd.conf (Apache's config file) :

<Directory "c:/wamp/www/">
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride all
    Order Deny,Allow
    Deny from all
    Allow from 127.0.0.1
</Directory>

The same goes for your PHPMyAdmin access, the config file is phpmyadmin.conf :

<Directory "c:/wamp/apps/phpmyadmin3.4.5/">
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
    AllowOverride all
        Order Deny,Allow
        Deny from all
        Allow from 127.0.0.1
</Directory>

You can set them to allow connections from all IP addresses like follows :

AllowOverride All
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
