    I’ve installed wordpress according to your cool tutorial , but I can only see the first page http://localhost/wordpress
    When I try to go to other of my new posts in older pages : Not Found
    The requested URL /wordpress/xxxxx/ was not found on this server.

    Anybody any ideas, please?

    • JL says:

      since you set it up on url “localhost” so the url should be localhost/wordpress/xxxxx/, not just /wordpress/xxxxx/

    Any chance of instructions about setting up WordPressMU on wampserver?

    Normally, to move a standard WordPress site from local to live, I have to change 2 entries in the options table, and it works fine.

    I normally setup WordPress with virtual hosting, in
    but I can’t get MU to work at all locally.

    nice tutorial but having a slight problem. I created a photo-blog using wordpress. Locally I have added all the photos and with http://localhost/site1 (directory: c:/wamp/www/site1) I can browse all the photos and links. But when I am trying to browse through http://site1 locally it only shows the home page and all other links are pointing to localhost and not to site1. Example: I open the site as http://site1 and then click on “about” link which points to http://localhost/about. How can I get this resolved???

    Also, when I try to open the site from another machine using web IP. It hits wamp server and my site1 but nothing works – css, photos, links all are broken.

    Thanks for the response.
    Would it be easy to change that? I would appreciate if you can point me where (in which settings) I need to change in WordPress.

      Sri, it’s simpler to reinstall WordPress instead trying to make a change, but make sure to setup VH first

    I can’t reinstall wordpress now. I have added so many pictures and created pages. If I reinstall it would be very difficult to get all those working again. But what I did instead is, I changed the general settings in wordpress for site address and wordpress address to http://site1. On my machine I am able to access the site as http://site1 but from another machine on the same network I can’t access the site at all. Showing “Page cannot be displayed”.
