Getting a “403 Forbidden” on Windows 8 with WampServer

Recently, I bought a Windows 8 machine. When I was setting up my development environment I realized that opening up my browser and pointing to ‘localhost’ was returning a ’403 Forbidden’ error.

This is how I fixed it:

  • Open the “httpd.conf” file. (C:\wamp\bin\apache\apache2.2.22\conf\httpd.conf)
  • Find the line with the following text:
    Listen 80
  • And change it to:
    Listen 0.0.0.0:80
