Forbidden You don't have permission to access /wp-login.php

Hi,

I created a new virtual host and I could access to it when I completed all the process. Today when I tried to access again I got this message:

Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /wp-login.php on this server.
Apache/2.4.39 (Win64) PHP/7.3.7 Server at newsite.test Port 80

The database is still there, the name of the virtual host appears on the virtualhost menu.

Why I could access yesterday and I can't now?

I discovered what happened. I changed the name of the folder as if it was a normal folder, forgetting it was a the root path of the database.

How can I change the name of the folder or, if for any reason, I need to change the root path to a different location?

Changing the root path on the httpd-vhosts file, will work?, Or do I have to modify this somewhere else?

Then it is NOTHING TO DO with the folder holding the database.
If you want to mess with things you really have to get a basic idea of what you are doing first.
Until that happens, stop fiddling with a system that works. If you f#£& with it when you don't know what you are doing, expect issues.

Do you need to change the folder name? Unless the answer is, I absolutely have to THEN DONT.
Instead, think about things before you do things.

Ok, i got the message -don't mess up with thing you don't know, but is that really so complicated?

I know that changing the name of a virtualhost site is the same than deleting it. You have to do it from the

httpd-vhosts file. At least there is one video tutorial that explain how to do it. Unfortunately, it didn't say anything about changing the root path, which basically, is the same that what I did by mistake today.

Is it really so complicated..... No

To change the name of the document root:
Stop wampserver
Rename or relocate the DocumentRoot folder
Edit the httpd-vhosts.conf file and change old folder names into the new folder names.
Simple, obvious

Easy peasy!

"Rename or relocate the DocumentRoot folder"
"Edit the httpd-vhosts.conf file and change old folder names into the new folder names."

You mean edit the whosts-conf from my virtual host? If so, I checked it, actually, in that point I need some piece of advice.

First: After ckecking the link for how to edit wp-config.php (ttps://wordpress.org/support/article/editing-wp-config-php)/ I am a bit confused. Wordpress already configured that folder. So, why will I have to configured the sample one, if it's already done?

Second: Regarding to renaming or relocating, I don't know what do you mean by changing the old folder name into the new folder name?

For instance, If I right click on the folder's name to change it, i.e. the folder contains wordpress, or if I want to relocated in another folder, how do i change it on the wp-config-php file?

Sorry, I couldn't get a grasp of that part.

Do you have Virtual Host(s) defined yet?

No i mean httpd-vhosts.conf ....
ITS A LINK ON THE wampmanager menu

(left click) wampmanager icon ->Apache->httpd-vhosts.conf and the editor will open it for you

Hi,

Sorry for replying so late,

When you said defined, what exactly did you mean?

"(left click) wampmanager icon ->Apache->httpd-vhosts.conf and the editor will open it for you"

I followed that link and yes, I could open it and check I have both sites.

I still don't know how to relocate or change a name of a virtual host. If I am not mistaken, if I want to change the name of the site, do I have delete the site from httpd-vhosts.conf folder? Is that right?

If I change the name or the root path in that folder, will not break things apart?

Changing the Location on disk is obvious.
Changing the Apache config is as simple as changing the Path and Folder in httpd-vhost.conf.

But as WordPress stores the domain name (Used when you installed the site) in its database, this part is not so simple.

Check out the WordPress codex for assistance on this subject, or simply Google `wordpress change site name` and read some of the tutorials. This site is not a WordPress help site. We have no WordPress experts here/

Hi,

Ok, thanks for the information.

"Changing the Location of disk is obvious."

Umm, sorry not for me!


Changing the name or location in httpd-vhost.conf wont break the site? Sorry for insisting in the same question again but I don't think it was answered.

I will check the worpress thing. I had no idea that I will have to do that too!

Well if moving a folder from one place to another in windows is beyond you the rest is well over your pay grade.

SORRY but this site is NOT a free training course on everything from Windows basics to Advanced websites.

WAMPServer is your playground. Use it, break it, learn from your mistakes, then throw it away and reinstall it and do it better next time.
