I tried to downloading the Wamp test server & followed the instructions at http://UpToSpeedGuides.com.
I put the example files into the wamp/www/ folder & typed: "http://localhost/" into my browser address bar.
I think the the wampServer didn't install correctly.
Also I don't know whether I need the 32 bit server or the 64 bit server & whether I need to have Visual C++ redistributed version installed.
Thanks for contacting us about this issue. I'll ask one of our booktech staff to take a look at it for you. They can be reached directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any further questions about this title.
Customer Service Rep,
To find out if you have 32 bit or 64 bit Windows, you can perform this test -
1. Open System by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking System.
2. Under System, you can view the system type.
Also, it says on the WAMP download page that you need to install the Visual C++ redistributable package
I hope that helps,
