WAMP server does not turn GREEN

As you all know what is WAMP Server, But those who not aware about it here is the short introduction about WAMP Server

WampServer is a Windows web development environment. It allows you to create web application with Apache2, PHP and a MySQL database.
Alongside, you can create your own application and host it locally.
Most of the time developer or tester use this for testing purpose or to create local environment.
You can see more about WAMPSERVER Click here .

As our scope is to see how to troubleshoot the issue if WAMP server is not turning GREEN,

There are 3 indication When you start your WampServer
Green     = Apache and MySQL Service started
Orange  = One of the services has not started ! This is a problem indicator
Red        = Apache and MySQL Services NOT RUNNING


After installing WAMP server. The icon in the tray goes red and then organge and from orange to green but its stuck on ORANGE. I can not get to the mysql console. And the icon does not turn green.
I cannot get to the phpmyadmin site too. It gives me an error


This issue indicated that your apache has not started, this is normally because something else is using port 80.

Steps to follow

1) Do left click on wampmanager ->Apache ->Service-> Test port 80


This will load a command window and tell you what is using port 80.

You will have to stop or uninstall that app.(In my case i am using Skype so just quit the skype)

NOTE : Make sure you have install Apache services
i.e Go to Apache==> Services ==> Install

Now you can see GREEN colour mark on your WampServer


If that also not work then you can do below steps :-

An other solution could be to simply alter the appache httpd.conf. You can acces this file from the wamp menu > Apache > httpd.conf

Next alter the

Listen 80
To for example

Listen 7080
Restart wamp and services then type http://localhost:7080 and you'll have wamp up and running

Hope it helps you :)
