Support » Localhost Installs » wampserver home page instead of my website

    I’ve installed Wamp, a local server on my W7 laptop, and have installed WordPress 3.3.2. I’ve created a database and am able to get to the WordPress dashboard and have created a one page website. However, when I click on the Pages, and click on the only page listed, and then click on the view link, what I see displayed is the Wampserver Home Page instead of my one page website.
    Did I miss a step in my installation?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Where did you install WordPress in your document root?

    Sorry but I’m new at this and I have no clue. How can I tell?

    Try looking in your document root folder for the WordPress files & folders.

    I’m sorry but I still can’t seem to figure this out. Here’s the tree structure of my Wamp installation:
    alias
    apps
    bin
    lang
    logs
    scripts
    tmp
    tools
    www

    Inside the www folder is where all the WP files are located.

    www is your server’s document root. Are all of the WP files in a wordpress sub-folder?

    They were not; however, when I created a wordpress sub-folder, and copied all files to it, I could no longer access WordPress via the Wamp menu (localhost) as I could when all the files were in the www folder.
    🙁

    Move everything back to its original location.

    I have all files back to their original location, but I’m still faced with the original problem; when I click visit website on the Dashboard page, the Wampserver configuration home page is displayed instead of my one page website.

    Is there an index.html file in the www folder? If so, try renaming it to index-old.html.

    I’ve done that already, and when I did and click on visit website, I get standard error message 401
    Not Found

    The requested URL /index.php/ was not found on this server.

    And what happens if you navigate to http://localhost/?

    The very same wampserver home page is displayed.

    So frustrating!

    What’s in your root index.php file? If it is longer than 10 lines, please use the pastebin.
