wamp help
hi there i am currently working for a community centre in the united kingdom and i have created a website that is to be hosted from a machine in the building. i have an extrenal static IP address as well a static IP address on the machine in question. i have forwarded port 80 from my tp link router and also allowed it though the firewall. i also have a URL with easy space and have been on there to change the A record settings to point to the external IP address of the server. i have used a website called canyouseeme.org and it says my port 80 cannot be seen...

is there anything i am doing wrong or havnt done ?

Have you tested with your firewall turned off?
Also make sure Wamp is set to online mode. Right click the icon in the lower right corner to activate it.

http://127.0.0.1 and http://localhost shows your website correctly from the hosting computer?

If those work sounds like you have a setting messed up for portforwarding or the IP the DNS server points to on easy space isn't correct.

Have you tried typing in External IP address? Don't use the URL used at easy space.

If that works then it's an issue with the URL pointing to that IP.
