    I know quite a bit of you use wamp. If some of you don't - Then you should for developing.

    Lately I've had an issue that Localhost was lost and did not start. I just couldn't get it to work no matter what I did (including the youtube vids that cover it).
    Took a while and some digging but if it happens to you here is the solution:

    Close Skype :pat:

    Elusive obvious. But that pretty much covers it.

    Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Connection -> Uncheck "Use port 80 and 433 as alternatives for incoming connections" Save, restart skype and you're golden.
