connection of wampserver failed

Posted 08 April 2013 - 02:38 AM

Whenever i start wampserver 2.2, the icon fails to turn to green; it remains red.
so when i try to click on localhost, i get an error which says;


Unable to connect

Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at localhost.

The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few
moments.
If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
connection.
If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.


so what might be the problem? please help me.

the Apache webserver does not start up (properly). you would probably have to check Apache’s log files (though the people in the Web Servers & Hosting forum can certainly tell you more).

Do you have Skype installed? That can conflict from what I understand.

Copy and paste the error log here and we can help.

yupp, Skype uses port 80 by default (which is also used by all web servers by default).
