Attempting to install on Windows 10 (home), Followed all the steps in the Windows using WAMP 2.5+ document. Using WAMP 5.4.44 (for compatibility with my hosting company). Both Apache and MySQL are running. Installed with Composer using gitbash 64 bit version of Git for Windows). SSinstalled in C:/wamp/www. Everything seems cool. When I try to use the installation home page (localhost/silverstripe) I get a 404 error page with the text: /silverstripe not found on this server.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Hi TechnoDino,

Sorry, I am not very familiar with WAMP, personally I use XAMPP. I dont believe this will cause to much of a problem however.

You may need to call the install.php file directly through the browser (E.g. localhost/silverstripe/install.php).
Also take a look at your .htacess file, you may need to modify the mod_rewrite for your silverstripe subdirectory.

Something like...

	RewriteEngine On
	RewriteBase '/silverstripe/'

A "/dev/build/?flush=1" wouldnt hurt either.
