I can't use my virtual host

Hello,

I'm trying to download my website onto a localhost. I created a virtual host using
Your VirtualHosts => VirtualHost Management. The name I gave it was oww and the path I used was C:/wamp64/www/oww.

I created the virtual host then restarted the DNS.

I copied all the website files into the c:\wamp64\www\oww folder and created a database called oww_db and imported the backed up database.

Because it's a wordpress site I changed the databane name to 'oww_db', username to 'root' and the password to ''.

I then typed localhost/oww in the address line of IE and all I got was a message saying;

Do you want to save or open oww from localhost?

When I click on Open nothing happens.

Was there something else I was suppose to do or am I just doing the whole thing wrong?
