Hi,

> "wamp server host file not writable"
The warning displayed is not exactly that, it's : /!\ hosts file not writable
and, if you click on this message, you will get more details:

There is problem with the file C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts
In order to create or modify VirtualHost,
it is imperative to be able to write to the hosts file.
Check that your anti-virus allows to write the hosts file.

Hi,

Make sure you own the hosts file and grant sufficient permissions to be able to write to it.
