Hi everyone,

I'm not sure this is the right category for my question. Sorry admin for the trouble.

I'm doing a project which is building a dynamic website using local HDD as my host/server.

I have downloaded a package/software (WAMP5 1.6.4) from wampserver. I on all the services and keep it online. But when I use IE to browse "http://localhost". IE gives unstable outcome. IE either shows "the page cannot be display" or the correct local page.

Same thing applies to phpMyAdmin and SQLiteManager. I can't reach the page thus failed to config anything. I can't figure what's going wrong.

Guys, please advice or point me to resources. Or is WAMP5 1.6.4 a suitable package? Thanks a lot in advance.

I dont run my computer as a server, but use it for testing scripts and have used XAMPP to setup apache/php/mysql and it works nicely. I think it will allow you to also run as a server/host, but not exactly sure.
