Hi I work at a library and we are trying to install WAMP on our web server but we cannot make it work. The last step we got to was creating a virtual host. This is the directory where it points [www.infoway.org]

We don't know how to proceed forward.

Thanks

Robin

Hi,

> trying to install WAMP on our web server but we cannot make it work.
We need more details on how Wampserver works on your system, too, thank you to READ (and answer) BEFORE YOU ASK A QUESTION

From what you indicate, it would seem that you did it the right way, i.e. create a VirtualHost to install WordPress.
For more explanations on VirtualHost and the need to create one for local sites, see :
The need for Virtual Host and Wampserver 3 - Create or add a VirtualHost

Nevertheless, here are some essential details:
VirtualHost and its associated folder must exist and be valid BEFORE you want to install Wordpress.
Then, after copying the Wordpress files into this folder, the installation must be started via the ServerName (local site name) assigned to this WordPress installation.
