I just installed Windows 8 Release Preview and my existing wampserver does not work. I tried installing easyphp and after the service was successfully started it can't find the localhost.

Is there any fix to this or other local servers to run php and phpmyAdmin the easy way ?

Thanks in advance.

Note: I already tried uncommenting the address while using wamp.

I'v tested wamp with W8 Release Preview and when I tried open http://localhost/my_site I got 403 error but when I tried, my site worked very nice.

Can you see localhost defined in C:/Windows/System32/drivers/etc/hosts ?
