  8. I did everything exactly as described and when I get to 14:30 after making the wp-config.php file, I open my browser and type in localhost/'' using my correct name and I get the Apache error 404, website not found. How does wamps know that this website files are in that folder under the the root path of the C:drive? I even used wamps to create a virtual host in Apache and pointed it to that folder. I checked my hosts file and there is only one entry for my website there. Any ideas?
