WAMP: Troubleshooting tips

After fresh install wampserver, some configurations need to be changed, or you’ll get 403 Forbidden error for setting up virtual directories (url links for local machine)

C:\wamp64\bin\apache\apache2.4.17\conf\httpd.conf

<Directory />
AllowOverride none
Require all denied
</Directory>

change to:

<Directory />
# Added to allow .htaccess in individual site folders to override
AllowOverride ALL
#AllowOverride none
#Require all denied
</Directory>

Other minor changes, refer to the httpd.conf of the previous version and do a side-by-side comparison
