Upgrade WAMP from 3.1.0 to 3.2.8 - links going to WAMP Config

Hi all,

Been using WAMP for ages now but this is the first time I've needed to upgrade WAMP Server. I have successfully upgraded and have set up the virtual host, with //localhost/mysite working (going to the login page and able to login) but then clicking links within the site continue to take me to the WAMP Config page. Typing out the link's address (//localhost/mysite/link_a.php) takes me to the correct page, but I cannot figure out how to get the links to work. I'm sure it's something simple that I've missed, but I cannot see what it is. I followed the instructions on [forum.wampserver.com].
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Chris

Hi,

Local sites must be declared as VirtualHost, as with all hosting providers.

See:
The need for Virtual Host
and
Wampserver 3 - Create or add a VirtualHost
and
Why to create a VirtualHost BEFORE installing a CMS
