[SOLVED]- the requested url / was not found on this server localhost

I wanted to set up my web dev environment on my machine using Wamp. After installing Wamp and creating a project directory in the ‘www’ folder,  I got the following error:

the requested url / was not found on this server localhost

the requested url / was not found on this server localhostAfter trying to solve the error, I found out that I had two ‘www’ folders in my Wamp installation directory. I had created the projects in the first ‘www’ directory that is found at the following path:

C:\WampServer\www

Instead, I should have created the projects to the ‘www’ folder found at this path:

C:\WampServer\wamp64\www

By creating my project folder in the second ‘www’ folder, I got this problem solved.

From the looks of things, I had installed two instances of Wamp, one inside the other. However, it is the inside one that was running and this is why I had to create the projects in the second ‘www’ folder.

I hope this helps someone
