How do I run a php site locally?

Msg#: 4436471 posted 1:25 am on Apr 3, 2012 (gmt 0)

I've installed wampserver and thought I would have a place kind of like a cpanel to load my files. It said installation was succsessful and it looks a lot like a php admin and a place to work on mysql files but I'm trying to work on a php site without a data base - instead I'm using a .txt file and I'm doing this from a computer not connected to an internet. thanks for any help.

Assuming you are on Windows operating system, your root folder is most probably here: C:\wamp\www

Create a folder/directory in that path, and just access it from: http:// localhost/YOURFOLDER

Make sure your wampserver is running.

I always recommend running a local web server on anything but port 80 so any outside probes don't know where to look on your machine to avoid getting easily hacked.

Hey Thanks a lot,
That works better than I expected.
