I have issues with Wamp and Wordpress Combo.
(Please let me know if this is not the right place to ask) Reason i ask here is because it started with this: (Beginner) Need help installing Wordpress on my VPS (Virtual Private Server)

I tried changing the port like said on other posts here.
But when i do that i get complete no connection page. not even 404.
I do have another php installed which is being used on a website. Could this be it?
Would really appreciate any help. i google'd lots and posted on the wamp forum aswell.

My Results from netstat port 80

C:\Users\Administrator>netstat -aon |find /i "listening" |find "80"
TCP--- TCP---[::]:80----------------------------[::]:0-------LISTENING---4 TCP---[ab29::4da:bzrr:re75:50dx@40]:42---[::]:0-------LISTENING---3172

Those last two are IP6 addresses i assume? so i changed the lettering a bit.

What base URL are using? It could be worth trying Also, make sure wp_debug is enabled to show any errors that may be occuring. I install WP on Mamp on port 80 at, and change the server root depending on the site I'm working on. – James Kemp Mar 17 '14 at 8:58
Have not gotten to WP yet because i get 404 at phpmyadmin so no point in WP if i cant build databases. By base url do you mean in my IIS or somewhere in wamp? not sure what you mean :) – Kialia Mar 17 '14 at 12:54
Base URL in WP, but if you haven't installed that yet... Does WAMP work with a standard index.php file? Also, sometimes Skype can interfere, if you have that running? – James Kemp Mar 17 '14 at 13:11
No i dont have skype running.. thats why i am confused about whats going on. Wamp has a base file yes localhost.php from what i recall that gives 404 aswell. – Kialia Mar 17 '14 at 13:20
