    Okay … So on Windows 7 sometimes after installing WAMP you have an issue starting the WAMP Server. This is caused by port 80 using used by IIS. So to change the Apache port for WAMP complete the following:

    How to change WAMP server port number windows 7

    1. Go to c:\wamp\bin\apache\Apache (your version)\conf
    2. Open httpd.conf file
    3. Search for Listen 80
    4. Change the line “Listen 80” to “Listen 8080” (or Listen You can use any no)
    5. Save the file and close it
    6. Then open http://localhost:8080/ , next to the localhost place the port no you changed in the httpd.conf file

    This solution is really helpful to use both IIS and WAMP server.

    Also, if you installing WordPress you will need to create a manual wp-config.php with the following:

    // ** MySQL settings – You can get this info from your web host ** //
    /** The name of the database for WordPress */
    define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘mytestwp_db’);

    /** MySQL database username */
    define(‘DB_USER’, ‘root’);

    /** MySQL database password */
    define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ”);

    /** MySQL hostname */
    define(‘DB_HOST’, ‘localhost’);
