I am attempting to install Wamp Server, but I am encountering 403-Forbidden Error. It says I don't have permission to access the server. Please refer to the screenshot below.
You don't have permission to access / on this server.
Please let me know how to resolve this so I can get access with phpmyadmin without getting issues. Thanks.
How to resolve 403 Forbidden Error during Wamp Server Installation for phpmyadmin
Forbidden errors of the type you mentioned, generally occur because of any mismatch in permission. They can be solved by editing the .conf files. 403 forbidden errors can exist in both “LocalHost” and “PhpMyadmin”.
The most common error being faced by developers while installing WAMP server is “403 forbidden”. If you have installed Wamp server 2.2, then the forbidden error, can be fixed by following 4 easy steps.
Open “phpmyadmin.conf” file from the path mentioned below after finding your wamp installer drive.
In that file, two similar/concurrent source codes will be available, in which you need to do the following edits.
Find this Code from the file: Order Deny, Allow
Deny from all
Allow from 127.0.0.1
Replace that with this one: Order Deny, Allow
Deny from all
Allow from all
Restart all services from the wamp.
Finally, start the wamp server and click on “phpmyadmin”.
