Making Your WAMP (Apache) available from Outside of the computer

Posted at


by default, you will have a limitaion on access to the server, allowing only connections from (your own localhost, also known as "your PC"),
it  can be modified turning your computer or any machine into a server, use your ip or dns (if you are in another network that gave your computer a nice nick-name)

click wamp icon,

under sub-menu "apache" select httpd.conf

(you can can open it in an editor of your choice, its on the latest wamp version it is in C:\\wamp\\bin\\apache\\apache2.2.22\\conf\\httpd.conf )

scroll or search allow

when you will get a block saying:

Order Deny,Allow
Deny from all
Allow from

replace it with:

Order Allow,Deny
Allow from all


and restart all your WAMP services.


here is the complete block of configuration:

<Directory "c:/wamp/www/">


# Possible values for the Options directive are "None", "All",

# or any combination of:

# Indexes Includes FollowSymLinks SymLinksifOwnerMatch ExecCGI MultiViews


# Note that "MultiViews" must be named *explicitly* --- "Options All"

# doesn't give it to you.


# The Options directive is both complicated and important. Please see


# for more information.
