Opening with WAMP, browser stuck in loading, nothing displayed


I'm new to PHPstorm and I'm still working everything out,

I've had this recurring problem since the beginning and I can't seem to figure out what exactly is causing it.

Currently it's an issue,

What Happens:

I open my script in google chrome, and instead of displaying the page, there is the loading symbol in the tab and nothing is displayed. As in, It's a blank white page in the window.

It does this sporadically too at times, i'll run a script in the browser, and it will work the first time, but I'll refresh the page, and it will get stuck.
This also happens after I run an infinite loop, and the result is I have to restart phpstorm...

I'm sorry if this is vague, but i don't know where to start, other than it's in my connection settings/xdebug

HOW I connect to the browser with wamp.

File >> Settings >> php >> php language level: 5.4
... >> + in top left >> C:\wamp\bin\php\php5.5.12 >> apply, then sychronize,

I really hope we can ask the right questions to get to the right answers

Thank you so much.

Hi there,

It's for configuring XAMPP .. but it should be similar.

File >> Settings >> php >> php language level: 5.4
... >> + in top left >> C:\wamp\bin\php\php5.5.12 >> apply, then sychronize,

This has nothing to do with WAMP. This is for executing local scripts & tools integration in CLI mode (and similar tools locally, e.g. CodeSniffer, PHPUnit, Composer etc)

Okay, looks like that is progress... I definitely didn't do the mysql / apache bits, but I had the php bin hooked up.

And now when I try to run index.php after making those changes, i'm getting a 404 page.
Suggestions from where to go from here?

Nope -- never worked (on serious level) with any of the WAMP/XAMPP/etc stacks myself -- only on install-it/setup-simple-website/yes-it's-workig,now-delete kind of level.  On "serious" level I work with Apache/IIS directly only.

Therefore I have to say that I have no real clue at what you have done already (since you have not mentioned anything about it) and what else you may be missing. I may only suggest to stick to one of the WAMP manuals (from scratch) and do ALL steps exactly as described there.

For this kind of question (how to configure WAMP / why it does not work) I may suggest to use as this site is more about actual PhpStorm/WebStorm

I just followed that guide you posted to me,

Thank you so much! (:

You don't know how much i've been struggling with that problem, it seems like it would come and go.

It worked when I created a new directory, so I just copied and pasted the files into it

I normally would've skipped out on confirming you fixed it because I was already moving on, but you saved me a big enough hassle i'll come back to give you your points (:
Thanks man. good luck with projects
