I installed wamp. I wanted to use Apache HTTP server instead, so deleted it. But wasn't sure if i deleted it properly. So I installed Apache HTTP server, and in the bottom right of screen where it shows the time etc, it had the apache symbol, butit was red, which obviously meant it wasnt running. So I clicked on it, and it gave me two options, 1: Apache HTTP Server and 2: WampApache. This confused me as I thought I had deleted Wamp. However I ignored the WampApache and click start on Apache HTTP server. But It wouldn't and just threw errors at me.
1) Why wouldnt it work? 2) Why did it give me the option for wampapache aswell
So I uninstalled Apache and I have re-installed wamp server on my windows 7 machine.
I also have netbeans installed.
I put a folder of mine which has some web files in into the www directory in the wamp dir.
I access localhost and it shows the start page with all the text and my projects.
I click the folder under my projects and then it just shows a 500 internal server error.
3) What is the potential problem here?
4) How could I fix this?
What I want to do, is make php sites on netbeans, save them to the www folder in relevant folders, open them through localhost, i.e. localhost/testsite and do local development and when they are ready upload them to the internet via ftp.
Bounty will be awarded to the person who can help me get either APACHE HTTP server or Wamp working so I can make sites on netbeans, put them in the www directory and view them via localhost. Preferably Apache HTTP server.
