Trying to install WAMP, not happening.

I keep trying to install every wordpress, or php web server software I can find, the lastest being WAMP. Nothing ever works. I feel like a complete retard here being that I can't even set up a stupid program, to be ABLE to program myself. Everything I install gives me a 404 not found error when I try to load the admin index page to a browser. I honestly have no friggn clue what is going on, I know syntax pretty decently for a lot of these languages, but as far as setting them up, I might as well just shoot myself. I know they can't make it any easier with these step by step tutorials, but it just doesn't seem to work on my comp.

Does your wamp install work?

If you visit localhost or 127.0.0.1 in your browser what do you see?

 

Wordpress requires mod rewrite enabled

 

Edit your apache config file and uncomment this

LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so

Also find the directory block

make it this

<directory />
Options All
  AllowOverride All
</directory>

Change everywhere is AllowOverride None to AllowOverride All

 

Browse to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts

 

If you want to map your pc to a domain.

example of some rules if the computers ip is 192.168.1.2

 

127.0.0.1       localhost
# ::1             localhost
localhost mysite.com
192.168.1.2 mysite.com
192.168.1.2 *.mysite.com

 

If plan on doing multi wordpress and just local set it to localhost.localdomain

 

Restart apache service to see the changes.

 

Edit:

If you are trying to do a domain and people outside your localhost see it, you also need to forward port 80 and any other ports you want within your router to your computers ip.

 

To be perfectly honest, windows is not the same as a linux server is.

I prefer to set up ubuntu server and install a desktop gui for development.

This way it can be exact to what your production is.

I wanted to clarify my last statement better.

 

If your intended website is a linux server, windows is not the same as a linux server is.

 

I prefer to set up ubuntu server and install a desktop gui for development.

This way it can be exact to what your production is.

 

Even if was a windows server would be using iis.

actually with WAMP you don't have all those issues.

 

To OP right click the wamp icon in taskbar and set to run all services then try again. thuis is a common problem with many new users of wamp
