    Hi, I installed wampserver succesfully on my 64 bit Windows 7 and installed wordpress on it too. Everything went off smoothly and I was able create a local site with it. But the problem came when I used WAMP the next time. I was able to visit the local site through localhost but I am unable to access the wordpress dashboard. Am I doing something wrong? Or how do I access the wordpress dashboard so that I can tweak the theme?

    I think what s_ha_dum might be asking you is, in what way specifically, can you not access the dashboard? Some possible scenarios might be:

    • You can't get to /wp-admin using //localhost/wp-admin, or //localhost/login, or //localhost/wp-login.php
    • You can reach the login page, but you get some type of error messsage. ie.. wrong password, username doesn't exist. etc...
    • You can access the login page, but you get an error message or a just a blank page after loging in.

    Share a little detail about what is, or isn't happening. That might be helpful in determining what the problem might be.

    Thanks ClaytonJames for making it clear. I don't get any error message as such. I doubt I am accessing WAMP in a wrong way. Well, when I start the wampserver, I get an icon on the notification bar which turns red to orange and finally to green. I access it by clicking the icon and then local host on the topmost which lands me on the wampserver homepage.On the page under "Your Projects", I have "Project1" which I have created. Clicking upon Project1 leads me to a page which lists two directories: the first one says Parent directory and the other wordpress. Further, clicking on wordpress takes me directly to the local site I have created without giving me the trouble to log in through the wordpress dashboard. This is the problem I am facing now since I want to test and tweak the theme I installed. Help me out!

    What happens when you choose the wordpress directory, and then add /wp-admin to the end of the url in the browser?

    By adding /wp-admin as in localhost/Project 1/wordpress/wp-admin, the browser takes me directly on the google search page.

    Avoid using spaces in your directory names. I suspect you have some sort of issue with the sub-directories. There also really isn't any need to install wordpress two sub-directories deep in WAMP.

    You might try installing wordpress at /www/wordpress. Then your path to wp-admin will simply be //localhost/wordpress/wp-admin

    (1) I installed a Contact Form widget. I added a new page and want to insert the codes into the new page. I need to change to mode from <Visual> to <html>, then I discovered that I don't have the tag <html> but <text> . What should I do? FYI, I use WAMPSERVER, tried it on Windows XP and Windows 7, Template=<Front Page Template>

    (2) I added another new page (the 2nd page) and typed something on it, also added menu and calendar. I pressed <Update>. When I press <View Page> (in middle column) or <Preview Changes> (at right hand side), a new web page pops up saying

    “Not Found
    The requested URL /cls/cheoy-lee-shipyards/about-cheoy-lee/ was not found on this server.”

    What should I do?

    FYI , the 1st page URL is <http://localhost/cls/wp-admin/post.php?post=4&action=edit>, when I press <View Page> I can view the web mode and its URL changed to <http://localhost/cls/>
