I'm trying to get to localhost/magento using WAMP but get the following message:

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

Does any know what I'm doing wrong?

  • Sounds like a WAMP issue, try this: stackoverflow.com/questions/8366976/… – Mex Feb 8 '15 at 22:06
  • Unfortunately that didn't solve my problem. I'm able to access myphpadmin but not magento. – Adnan L Feb 8 '15 at 22:17
  • what is the issue? it may be time out issue – Amit Bera Feb 9 '15 at 5:02

Try using instead of localhost while installing magento.

  • Thank you! I will try that. I'll be honest I'm not entirely sure on how I would go about doing that but I will do the research and try to figure it out. Thanks for your insight! – Adnan L Feb 11 '15 at 17:56
  • During the installation process you have to specify the "Base URL" under "Web access options". There use "" instead of "localhost/magento" – cads Feb 11 '15 at 18:10
