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