Support » Localhost Installs » VirtualHost Created, Site Not Found

  • Hi folks. I’m getting started with WP, and I’ve run into a snag. My site works on the WAMP server I’ve got running to my desktop, so I must have done something right there, but when I tried to recreate the same site (not copy) on my laptop, my browser can’t find the site.

    I’ve got WAMP installed and running, and my virtual host was created and shows up in WAMP and on my localhost page. Yet, when I hit the link or go to the domain, it says page not found. I’ve double checked the file path for the domain, and everything I can see looks correct, and I can’t determine what, if anything I did differently on my desktop to have success there.

    Any advice would be deeply appreciated.

  • I should add that I can’t connect to www localhost sites I create on WAMP either. I’m looking around for a solution, but if anyone knows where I might have gone wrong, I’d be grateful.

    Can you give us the URLs that work and those that don’t. Also the file paths of where the website files live. Also the VirtualHost config blocks from apache and the lines you have in your “hosts” file.
    In addition to the “VirtualHost” blocks in the apache config, there are also directory permission blocks like:

    <Directory C:/WebSiteFiles>
     Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
     AllowOverride All
     Require all granted
    </Directory>

    Can you find anything in that apache error logs ?

    Ross, thank you for your time. I located the error in the directory, which ended up being a typo.

    Would it be appropriate to mark this thread as resolved.
