Hi,

I am running WAMP Server and when I go to http://localhost it takes me to the WAMP page.  How would I get it to redirect so when I go to localhost, it takes me to http://localhost/joomla?

Thanks,

John

At the following two lines to your Apache's http.conf inside the VirtualHosr or inside the global config (if you do not have a Virtual Host) and check whether the following line is not commented out:

LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so

-- Abel --

RewriteEngine On	

RewriteRule ^/$ /joomla/ [R]

Open in new window
