    I want to have two test sites on my hard drive using wampserver -- client1 and client2. Right now, I have wampserver running fine for a single client with WordPress in the www folder. Can I run two test sites on Wampserver? If so, what do I need to do to set this up? Thanks!

    Put WordPress in a sub-folder of your www folder.

    www/client1
    www/client2

    I did that and when I go to wampserver's localhost I get a directory with client1 and client2, but when I click on them I get the following error message: "Unable to open WampServer's config file, please change path in index.php file" Which index.php file do I need to change and how?

    Sorry, not sure about wampserver.

    XAMPP is very easy to use in that sense. In the \xampp\htdocs folder I have wp27, wp28, and wp29, to run 3 different versions of WordPress. Those are accessed in the browser by visiting http://localhost/wp28/

    In the xampp\htdocs\wp28 folder is the standard 3 WordPress subfolders and 22 files including an index.php and a wp-config.php file.

    Thanks for the generic info. on a single WordPress local install. I have already done that, and everything works fine. My question is how to reconfigure Wampserver and WordPress to enable me to have two test sites on my hard drive. As I noted in my original question, right now I have wampserver running fine for a single client/local install with WordPress in the www folder. Any information on multiple Wampserver local installations would be helpful. Thanks!
