    WAMP server only accessable from localhost Link to this post

    Since I could not get Silverstripe working on IIS (see my other threads) I switched to WAMP on my Win2003 server.

    And ... within 5 minutes Silverstripe was up and running, that's the way it should be!

    But, now I can only access Silverstripe from the webserver itself (http://127.0.0.1/silverstripe or http://localhost/silverstripe)

    I want it to be accessable from every computer in my local network and even from the outside (through my firewall), so ... no restrictions.

    I now get the following error:

    Forbidden
    You don't have permission to access /silverstripe/ on this server.

    Where can I change this?

    The default settings for WAMP prevent external connections, but if you click the WAMP Manager icon in your task bar you should have the option to "Put Online". Via ola, everyone can access your box.
