    I just set up WAMP on my laptop to make learning WordPress theme and plugin creation easier. But I need to be able to run multiple WordPress instances for multiple test sites and am having difficulty finding out how this should be done correctly.

    What are the best practices for running multiple WP instances in WAMP on Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit?

    Thanks for your help!

    Install different copies of WP in sub-folders. I think I’m running 5 different installs locally at the moment.

    This works….

    1) Remove the hash from in front of “LoadModule vhost_alias_module modules/mod_vhost_alias.so” in the C:\wamp\bin\apache\apache2.2.22\conf\httpd.conf file.

    2) Create a folder for each site in c:\wamp\www\.

    3) Add an entry for each folder/site in c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts. (like “localhost sitename”).

    4) Restart WAMP.

    Solved!
