Install Drupal 8 on WAMP

I wanted to play around with Drupal 8. I often use WAMP and I have also install XAMP. They both work well. WAMP can be a tougher install in my opinion especially on Windows 10.

During my Drupal install I ran into Mod_Rewrite, OPCach and XDebug settings that needed to be corrected before the install would complete. I found the following video on YouTube that solved my issues perfectly.

Thanks to the guy who put this together.

I hope this helps someone else out there…

 

Drupal 7 install on WAMP – now page is forbidden

Playing around with Drupal I suddenly found I was unable to view pages with the “localhost” URL.

Solution was a “.htaccess” file got written to the www folder. I deleted this file and everything was normal again

The issue would come back each time I went into the configuration area. I am trying to figure out how to stop this.

I hope this helps someone else out there…
