Project Links do not work on Wamp Server!!!
In WampServer it is now recommended to create a Virtual Host for each of your projects, even if you hold them in a \wamp\www\subfolder structure. The WampServer home page ( \wamp\www\index.php ) now expects you to have created a Virtual Host for all your projects and will therefore work properly only if you do so.
How to create a Virtual Host in WampServer
There are 3 steps to create your first Virtual Host in Apache, and only 2 if you already have one defined.
-Create the Virtual Host definition(s)
-Add your new domain name to the HOSTS file.
-Restart the Apache service
Step 1, Create the Virtual Host definition(s)
Edit the file called httpd-hosts.conf which for WampServer lives in
I am assuming we want to create a definition for a site called project1 that lives in
Now we define our project: and this of course you do for each of your projects as you start a new one.
DocumentRoot "c:/wamp/www/project1" ServerName project1 Options Indexes FollowSymLinks AllowOverride All Require local
Add your new domain name to the HOSTS file.
The hosts file should look like this when you have completed these edits
127.0.0.1 localhost 127.0.0.1 project1 ::1 localhost ::1 project1
Now we must tell windows to refresh its domain name cache, so launch a command window using the Run as Administrator menu option, and do the following.
net stop dnscache net start dnscache
To activate this change in you running Apache we must now stop and restart the Apache service.
wampmanager.exe -> Apache -> Service -> Restart Service
