Update:

If any of you is getting a problem that WAMP icon doesn’t turn green follow these steps:

  1. Do left click on  WAMP server icon ->Apache ->Service-> Test port 80
  2. This will load a command window and tell you what is using port 80.
  3. Stop or uninstall that application
  4. Exit and restart wamp.

Usually Skype or teamviewer use port 80 and you can’t simply uninstall them so do this:

  1. Click the WAMP server icon > Apache > httpd.conf.
  2. Then change the line Listen 80 to Listen 8080 or any port you want.
  3. Save the file in C:/wamp.
  4. Exit and restart wamp.
