Windows10-64bit,version-3.0.6,apache-2.4.23,php-5.6.25,mysql-5.7.14,icon-green, localhost ::1 localhost,localhost-yes,8a-no,9-yes,11-Avira,c:/wamp64

One of the files in a projects index of files is opening the wrong file. It shows the correct file/path when mouse hovers, but opens a different file. Never seen this before.

This sounds odd.

Can you say which file(s), as there is no obvious reason for this.

Do you have a .htaccess that may be effecting this?

(Windows 10 Pro 64bit) (Wampserver 3.3.1 32bit & 64bit) Aestan Tray Menu
<Apache versions MULTIPE> <PHP versions MULTIPLE> <MySQL Versions MULTIPLE>
<MariaDB versions MULTIPLE> <phpMyAdmin versions MULTIPLE> <MySQL Workbench 8.0.23>

Read The Manuals Apache -- MySQL -- PHP -- phpMyAdmin

Its a php file. I thought it was strange myself. I uninstalled and re-installed wampserver. Added the project to www, then added the database I backed up with mysqldump. Whats happening now is that when I click on the project, it displays in the url as "project/" but displays localhost, not the project files. Localhost, phpinfo and phpmyadmin all work. I'm guessing I'm missing an apache config somewhere.

I deleted the problem file and create a new file with the same name, no code. It opened correctly. I then added to code in steps and eventually with all the code its still opening correctly. I then created a vh, its working as well. No idea what caused the issue thought. Its working, that's all that matters.
