You don't have permission to access / on this server on wamp

After WAMP server installation, when I tried to access it using URL

This message is appeared when you have an Operating System (Windows  8, Window 7, etc.) which is IPv6 compatible. This is because Apache server assumes that it will receive messages from ::1 port while we are only sending it from 127.0.0.1. To resolve the issue, you need to make changes in httpd.conf file (C:\wamp\bin\apache\apache2.2.22\conf\httpd.conf)  and in phpmyadmin.conf (C:\wamp\alias\phpmyadmin.conf). First you need to replace below line in httpd.conf file
Allow from 127.0.0.1
to
Allow from 127.0.0.1 ::1
Similarly, in phpmyadmin.conf file you need to replace the same line
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews     AllowOverride all         Order Deny,Allow Deny from all Allow from 127.0.0.1
to
