I'm trying install Magento in my localhost, but I'm getting the message "This webpage is not available". I've installed WAMP and it works fine. Then, I extracted magento to "www" folder of WAMP. I'm using Windows 8.1, Wamp 2.2 and Magento 1.8.1.

  • is your other projects from the www is running properly check that ? Sep 27, 2014 at 4:12
  • I don't have other projects in Wamp. My other projects is in a remote server. But I thought about it before and created a test folder and put a simple php file and it works fine. Sep 27, 2014 at 4:17
  • provide url that you are tried? provide the directory structure starts from www? check for the permission of magento directory. Most importantly, create a test.php inside www directory and put <?php echo phpinfo(); there and then load localhost/test.php. check it loading properly Sep 27, 2014 at 5:23
  • I tried several urls: localhost/magento, www.localhost.com/magento and localhost.com/magento. Sep 27, 2014 at 5:41
  • I created the file test.php and it loads fine. The structure of www: .folder ..index.php .magento ..magento files .index.php .test.php .testmysql.php The magento directory is read-only. Sep 27, 2014 at 5:45

I solved the problem. The problem was the version of Wamp. This version of Magento isn't compatible with this version of Wamp. Then, I only made the downgrade to Wamp 2.1 and all works fine now.
