If you’re trying to get WAMP configured on Windows 8 – you might benefit from this tip I found over on StackOverflow. I got the server configured but was having trouble using http://localhost/ as opposed to 127.0.0.1.

Turns out the default WAMP Apache httpd.conf file needs to be edited a bit to make things kosher.

    If you follow the stackoverflow post, localhost will work. Still the localhost/phpmyadmin wont work. You can check out this post. http://ronithomas.com/wamp-server-not-working-on-windows-8/
