I am asking this question after several attempt to install magento2.3 on windows10 WAMP. Every time the installation stops and shows error at zero percent or at 70 percent or in between. Lot of people advised to try it on Ubuntu but that is not possible because our company using Windows10 as OS and not permitted to use Ubuntu.

The steps/configuration that i follows for Magento 2.3 installation on WAMP

  1. Wamp Version 3.1.7
  2. PHP 7.1.26
  3. Apache 2.4.23
  4. Enabled Open SSL
  5. Set max_execution_time = 18000
  6. Set memory_limit = 2G
  7. max_input_time = 1800
  8. Enabled Exception printing
  9. Set Full permission to magento folder/files (777)
  10. Then setup virtual host in The Directory "D"

Virtual Host Settings

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerAdmin [email protected]
DocumentRoot "D:/Projects/mage230ce"
ServerName local.mage230ce.com
ErrorLog "logs/local.mage230ce.com-error.log"

And all my efforts towards installing magento2.3 from browser becomes failed and installed magento2.3 using composer. Please check https://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.3/install-gde/composer.html for more details

Please note that, Since our OS is windows, Windows uses "\" as separator so we need to edit core file:


Search for $realPath and replace it with $realPath = str_replace('\', '/', $this->fileDriver->getRealPath($path));

Hope this helps


I tried many solution but one working for me

You need to do following things. 1. Open this file.

  1. Fine this function

    protected function isPathInDirectories($path, $directories)

Spoiler arround line no. 133

  1. Now replace

$realPath = $this->fileDriver->getRealPath($path); arround line no. 138


$realPath = str_replace('\\', '/', $this->fileDriver->getRealPath($path));
  1. Run following commands from CLI.

php bin/magento cache:clean php bin/magento cache:flush php bin/magento indexer:reindex php bin/magento setup:upgrade php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy -f

It works for me.

Grab it from: https://community.magento.com/t5/Installing-Magento-2-x/Magento-2-3-0-after-installation-problem-with-WAMP/td-p/122785


Magento is not compatible with windows. See here: https://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.3/install-gde/system-requirements.html#operating-systems-linux-x86-64

Please use Linux in Docker, with Hyper-V or Vagrant to run Magento on a Windows PC.
