In case, the WampServer homepage is not available. Here it means either we’re running any other application on port 80. Also we need to check our host file which needs to be assigned following IP 127.0.0.1. However applications like XAMPP, DesktopServer, Skype and WebDAV etc. might cause such issues.
Secondly we’ll check our phpMyAdmin by visiting the link http://localhost/phpmyadmin/ using suitable browser. In case we get can’t connect or invalid settings or such errors. For such case, we’ll need to configure C:\wamp\apps\phpmyadmin3.5.1\config.inc.php file by using some text editor for example: notepad++ etc. Make sure the following value is set to true to resolve the issue.
