What does the error say, exactly? And which browser are you using?
Are you 100% sure the file you are asking for exists?

If WAMP isn't working properly, I would recommend you try the XAMPP package instead. I've never had any problems with that one.

WAMP and XAMPP and just simple programs that control apache and other applications like MySQL there both pretty good I prefer installing everything myself.

You need to make sure the file exists and is in the directory that apache is serving files from. Those are the only problems you can be having with that other then messed up rewrite rules in apache and maybe a few others I'm unaware of.

hi i had installed also the xamp and it's the same problem .
yes the file exists, and the page didn't open at all it said internet explorer cannot open this page !!! but there is a file which already exixts in wamp (index.php) when i wrote http://localhost/index.php it opened . so what's the problem (PS: i have windows XP and i'm using the version 5 of wamp server) and thanks for replying.

Okay lets try to go over this again. Make sure the file exists from where apache is taking your documents. Likely to be something like "C:/xampp/apache/htdocs/" if you accepted the default make sure you saved your file there unless you changed the directory from where apache will start serving your files.

Where exactly is that file located on your hard drive?
If you change that file, does WAMP show the change?

And I assume this file is located where you tried to put your other files?

Hello sousou
if your php short tags not working, then please click wampserver icon -> PHP -> php.ini
in this file change short code status on
short_open_tag = On

Hey I have a WAMP setup (windows/apache/mysql/php). I'm running the latest version of all of them with a default installation of all of them. PHP works great with apache (as a module, not cgi), except that sessions aren't working. The script at the bottom of this post never increments my hit count. Do I need to turn sessions on somehow in php.ini? Thanks,

Hello, I've recently installed apache on a new computer, and cannot figure out why my site will not process any includes.

I had WAMP Server installed for a few months, everything was fine. Now all of a sudden it stopped working. It still executes the PHP but it doesn't allow me to write to a .txt file anymore. When I put the same files on the web it works great. And it worked with wamp server before yesterday. So I uninstalled WAMP server and installed WAMP Server2 and it still has the same issues.
