I have all of my site files in a different location then the c:/wamp/www directory. Is it possible to have it configured to where my website files are instead?

Yep. Just like a standard Apache installation, there is a httpd.conf file. In the WAMP Control Panel, locate the Apache section and select httpd.conf. In the file, you will want to modify the DocumentRoot directive.

Explain a bit more? How would I modify it? What would I put in? I'm a noob with this. – Omnix Nov 7 '10 at 1:52
Change the current path to the path with your sites – John T Nov 7 '10 at 2:03
Can I put in multiples? Like – Omnix Nov 7 '10 at 3:06
DocumentRoot "c:/wamp/www/" & DocumentRoot "c:/documents/...." – Omnix Nov 7 '10 at 3:07
@Omn, Nope. How would you expect that to work? When you pull up your site it can only show you 1 page. If you want multiple sites look into Virtual Hosts. – John T Nov 7 '10 at 4:51
