How to Install WAMP Server on Windows 10

First Make sure you do not have Skype installed on your Windows 10 machine, if you need to keep it you will have to change the port numbers as they interfere with SSL port 443. Then visit http://wampserver.aviatechno.net/ and download the following files.

Wampserver 3.1.9 64 bit x64 - Apache 2.4.39 - PHP 5.6.40/7.0.33/7.1.28/7.2.18/7.3.5 - MySQL 5.7.26 - MariaDB 10.3.14

Wampserver update 3.1.9

First Extract the All VC Redistribuable Packages (x86_x64) (32 & 64bits)  download. Then install each one by right clicking and running as Administrator.

Next we will Run the Checker program Checks VC++ packages installed by right clicking and running as Administrator

Click through

If you get this you are ready to proceed , if not install whats missing

 

 

 

Now we are ready to install WAMP, so right click and run as Administrator on the install download. Wampserver 3.1.9 32 bit x86 - Apache 2.4.39 - PHP 5.6.40/7.0.33/7.1.28/7.2.18/7.3.5 - MySQL 5.7.26 - MariaDB 10.3.14

Lets click through these

 

When this option comes up , in this tutorial I use Firefox

Go up once in the tree.

and again

Then choose the Program File as below

Double Click Mozilla Folder

and choose the Firefox executable

 

 

It will now ask if you want to use another text editor besides regular notepad. In this tutorial I will use Notepad ++. You can use your preferred text editor or if you wish to follow along it's not too late to download and install Notepad ++ as it does not require a reboot.

Choose yes

Go up one directory

then another

then double click Program Files (x86)

Double Click the Notepad ++ folder

then choose the Notepad ++ executable

The install then finishes up with the following windows

 

 

You will now have the WAMP shortcut on your desktop

Its best to always run WAMP as Administrator, so right click and run as Administrator each time you start it up. You will now have the WAMP icon on the taskbar. You want for it to be green, which means its running properly. Mine is yellow

To fix this left click the icon on the taskbar

and Restart  All Services

When it restarts your icon should be green which means success. You have seen the options from left clicking the icon, right clicking also bring up other options as well. You have successfully set up a WAMP server. Please note its best to shut down the WAMP server before rebooting your computer, also you want to stop it now to run the update package. Which is as simple as right clicking it and running as Administrator. Thanks for checking out my tutorial
