Add a Virtual Host...

OK...


Win 10- Pro 64 bit, v1803, Clean Install. All the recommended C++ redistributables are present 64 and 32 bit versions. Uninstalled Skype and some of the other foolishness that Microsoft bundles.

Running WAMP Server 3.1.3, just downloaded this morning, local...


Apache 2.4.33
PHP 5.6.35
MySQL 5.7.21
Maria DB 10.2.14

The WAMPServer icon in the system tray is green.


++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


Assuming I am reading the instructions in the "All You Need Top Know" post, I create a file folder at the Root of a storage array attached to this computer using File Explorer running as an administrator. I navigate to the WAMPServer Homepage and attempt to "Add a Virtual Host."


I add the name of the Virtual Host on the first line and the path to the virtual host folder on the second like and I get:

( ! ) Warning: fopen(C:\\WINDOWS/system32/drivers/etc/hosts): failed to open stream: Permission denied in C:\wamp64\www\add_vhost.php on line 442

Warning: fwrite() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean given in C:\wamp64\www\add_vhost.php on line 443

and...

Sorry, I missed the last part of the error.

Anyway, my take is that the "Add a Virtual Host" Function does not have permission to modify the "Hosts" file. And I'm sure that whatever it is that I'm failing to do is superficial and something that ought to be obvious.


Can you help me out with this one?

Hi

Often this is caused by your virus checker protecting the HOSTS file.
You may have to amend your virus checkers config so it either allows access for a few minutes or stops gaurding the HOSTS file completely

OK...

It wasn't the antivirus software.

I uninstalled WAMPServer. Then turned the antivirus and firewall software, my case Zonealarm.

Then with the antivirus and firewall off, reinstalled WAMPServer, created the required file folder at C:/wamp64/www/<foldername>.

Navigated to localhost via the WAMpserver icon in the system tray and attempted to create the virtual host again but ended up with the same three errors.

How do you heel about starting the machine up in safe mode and attempting the edit to the hosts file manually?

And so...

Here's what I did. Another clean install of Win 10 Pro. Download and install as Administrator all of the required Windows C++ redistributable files.

The Check_Vredist.exe program indicates that the 2008 redistributables are missing although these redistributables are present. I attempted to reinstall the 2008 redistributables and the install wizard came back with the "repair" or "remove" dialog.

With a fresh installation of Win 10 Pro and after installing all of the redistributables I started Windows File Explorer as an Administrator, Navigate to the "explorer.exe" file in the "Windows" folder, right click and select, "Run as Administrator" then navigate to the "C:/windows/system32/drivers/etc" folder, right click the "Hosts" file and allow unrestricted access to the "Hosts" file.

Install WAMPserver as per instruction and create the desired Virtual Host folder.

Launch the WAMPServer per instruction and create the virtual host.

Stop the WAMPServer, open File Explorer again as an administrator, navigate to the Hosts file and restore the file's original permissions.

Hi,

If vcredist says redistributables are missing, they are missing. Those who are present are not the right version.
Microsoft has the habit of changing redistributable links without warning or putting a link on the correct version.
All "good" VC++ redistributable versions are on http://wampserver.aviatechno.net in the section Visual C++ Redistribuable Packages

> navigate to the Hosts file and restore the file's original permissions.
Why ?
