Hello, I encountered the same problem while testing the Uniform Server 13.4.0 and the wordpress installation tutorial (http://www.uniformse..._wordpress.html).


It is not specific to Wordpress, but to external access to the apache server.


In case it may help someone, just follow the instructions in the  .htaccess file (located in the root folder : www) : Comment next four lines to deactivate. (Allows external access)

Stop apache, edit the .htaccess file (just add a # at the beginning of each line), restart apache and external access will be granted.
