http://localhost is accessible (WAMPSERVER Homepage), as well as the mentioned Tools and Aliases on that homepage, but Projects aren't.

When you click on the name of your project, you are redirected to http://<your-project>/ instead of http://localhost/<your-project>/.

Make the following change to the index.php file in C:\wamp\www:

$suppress_localhost = true; => $suppress_localhost = false;

Restart your WampServer and you projects are accessible!

Two PHP versions on one WampServer: PHP 5.3.29 & 5.5.12

On WampServer 2.5 it is possible to have two (or simply "multiple") PHP versions alongside one another.

By default, WampServer 2.5 has php 5.5.12 (see C:\wamp\bin\php).

For Joomla 1.5 projects, I still need php 5.3. The latest/final version of php 5.3 is 5.3.29 and is only available in a 32-bit flavour.

So install WampServer 2.5 32-bit.

Then add the php5.3.29 binaries in the C:\wamp\bin\php directory.

Then copy the php.ini, phpForApache.ini and wampserver.conf files from php5.5.12 to php5.3.29.

In the two .ini files you've copied in the 5.3.29 tree, change the extension_dir values from php5.5.12 into php5.3.29.

Restart your WampServer, and you'll be able to choose the desired php version from the tray menu item, and Joomla 1.5 will still work.


If your Joomla 1.5 project doesn't work on your local Windows WampServer environment, remove the .htaccess file.
