I am trying to install Craft CMS 2.5 on a Windows 10 machine using WAMP 2.5.
I just downloaded both Craft and WAMP this morning — so both are fresh installs.
I believe I have done everything properly, but when I navigate to
localhost/sitename/public I get the following message:
Our site is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later.
If I try navigating to
localhost/sitename/admin I get the following message:
The requested URL /sitename/admin was not found on this server.
Apache/2.4.9 (Win64) PHP/5.5.12 Server at localhost Port 80
These are the steps I took when setting up:
- Created a folder in
- Copied the
publicfolders into the
.htaccess(using windows command line)
- Created database in phpmyadmin
(the only change I had to make was to add the database name — I left server as localhost, user as root and password blank. I did change the tablePrefix to five different letters — i.e., no numbers or special characters)
I did NOT change the permissions on any of the app, config or storage folders for the simple reason that I do not know how to do that on Windows.
Unless the permissions are the problem, then I do not know why I am having this problem.
