WAMP server for windows

WAMP server for windows
(Windows Apache Mysql Php)

This works well on windows 2000, XP, Vista. Of course with Vista there are a few ACL hoops you have to jump through which I will not discuss.

1. Download wampserver from http://www.wampserver.com (I’m using wamp5_1.7.0.exe)

2. Install with defaults – DO NOT SELECT AUTOMATIC STARTUP!

Out of the box it will not work (WTF?)

3. edit C:\wamp\Apache2\conf\http.conf

change the section at DocumentRoot to look like this:
—————————————————–

DocumentRoot "C:/wamp/www"


Options FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride None
Order deny,allow
Deny from all
Satisfy all

change the following section to look like this:
———————————————————–


Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride all
Order Allow,Deny
Allow from all

4. Now the default install gives you access to phpmyadmin and sqlitemanager. But guess
what? with the default install you can’t access them, you just get a permission error.
Go to the forums and you will get non-answers to the problem. Go nuts or read on…

Fix phpmyadmin and sqlitemanager:
———————————

edit C:\wamp\Apache2\conf\alias\phpmyadmin.conf

make it look like this:

Alias /phpmyadmin/ "c:/wamp/phpmyadmin/"

Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
AllowOverride all
Order Allow,Deny
Allow from all

edit C:\wamp\Apache2\conf\alias\sqlitemanager.conf

make it look like this:

Alias /sqlitemanager/ "c:/wamp/sqlitemanager/"

Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
AllowOverride all
Order Allow,Deny
Allow from all

Restart (or start) Wampserver

point your browser at http://127.0.0.1

default directory is:

C:\wamp\www
