I installed WP locally to my Windows 7 computer using Wampserver. I installed WP into a subfolder of the www directory I called wpsandbox.
While I can access my dashboard to make posts, install plugins, and the like, if I preview my site, I am unable to view any of my posts. Instead, I get 404 errors.
For example, I can view my blog by loading
http://localhost/wpsandbox/ in Firefox. However, if I click on a post link, like Hello World, I get this message:
The requested URL /wpsandbox/uncategorized/hello-world/ was not found on this server.
And this is true if I try to look at comments, archives, cateogries, —basically any link on the homepage! If I also try previewing a post or comment from the dashboard, I get the same error.
The tricky part of this conundrum is, as a WP newbie, I really have no idea where the problem might lie. I did quite a bit of searching of this forum and other websites, but I'm coming up empty handed.
Any takers on this puzzle? I'll be glad to provide any additional information you might need. I appreciate any and all help. My whole goal of installing locally is to get a chance to learn WP before I go live.
