I’m new to testing localhosting with Bitnami and WAMP.

My question is what will my web URL be for local testing?

I tried to setup a Virtual Host for my PHP based website.

I went into the httpd.conf file and un-commented the vhosts.conf file.

In the vhosts.conf file, I setup my virtual host:

<VirtualHost *:80>
DocumentRoot c:/vhosts/linksite
ServerName linksite

I tried going to linksite/index.html and got the Bitnami Wordpress splash (from apache2/htdocs I’m assuming). I presume I can run my Wordpress local stack and other sites from my WAMP stack.

I went into httpd.conf again and changed the DocumentRoot from:

C:/Program Files/BitNami WAMPStack/apache2/htdocs



assuming that would fix it. Same splash.

I guess I’m either referencing something incorrectly, or I’m just using the wrong URL.

I’m very new to this, so I apologize if it’s been answered elsewhere. It’s hard to find it has. Any help is appreciated.
