For those of us who still runs WAMP, and upgraded to windows 10, might have realized that once you upgraded to Windows 10, WAMP started working.
If you wish to still use WAMP on Windows 10, following the following steps will sort this issue out.
- Click the windows/start button
- Type cmd
- Right-click on “Command Prompt” that shows in the list and click “Run as Administrator”
- Now in command prompt, type the following
- This command will stop IIS (the Windows web server) from running. If you restart WAMP your localhost should work again.
Note that this does not solve the problem in entirety, it only solves it for people who want to use both WAMP and IIS. But if you are like me and couldn’t care less for IIS, then you might as well disable it completely. To do this:
- Click the windows/start button, type in services.msc
- Scroll down in the Services and locate the World Wide Web Publishing Service.
- Right click on it and select “Properties”
- On properties screen, change “Startup Type” to Disabled
- Apply changes and your done
Happy WAMPing :)

In our company I’ve become the unofficial “Framework Tester Guy”, because I always seem to be the one working on the latest version of our internal framework. Recently I decided to try out an established framework to develop a little personal project of mine. I picked cakephp for several reason.
I run Windows 7 on my home system and I couldn’t find a nice quick guide on setting up the cakephp console on windows 7 in a text format. Sure, there are screencasts, but sometimes having nice step by step text instructions is just easier, especially when your internet connection is acting up a bit and you can’t stream effectively (like when you stay in South Africa). So here are some quick and easy steps to set up the cakephp console in windows 7 on a WAMP server.

I’m working on a wamp system, and have started playing around with sockets. I enabled sockets via the wamp interface:
wamp : PHP settings : PHP extensions : php_sockets
and could run my php file via my browser.
When trying to run the same file via the command prompt (start : run : cmd), I got the following error:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function socket_create() in … on line …

I just got WAMP and SVN up and running again after having re-installed Windows. Then under my localhost – http://localhost/ – only my SVN directories wouldn’t show at all under the directory listing.
