Will WAMP local testing work with .html ext with .htaccess enabled includes? Dont know if I worded that right but via my .htaccess code I run php with .html extensions. This is done at the server level obviously. But now I have so many includes my local testing sort of sucks (very little shows) so I want to setup WAMP again. But I'm thinking it wont work - or will it??? What do you think before I go to all the trouble to needlessly set it up?

Update:

 

I did a quick search on this and found the following:

 

 

Go to Wamp -> Left click at icon in the taskbar -> Click Config files -> httpd.conf

A file will be opened.

Search rewrite in it.

You will get:

 

#LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.soRemove hash from the beginning (Uncomment it) e.g.

 

LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so

Seems to me that the mod rewrite has to be enabled. Not sure if this will solve the problem but it's worth a shot.

 

Edit: ...and then I found this brief post that applies the same method as above.

I will give this a try thanks Eddie.

 

On a side note. This site is so awesomely coded now. What before took like ten nested tables... Now I just floated all like three containers and and overflow hiddened/gave width the wrap. So clean and simple.

 

...and PIE.htc by default provides ie6 png fixes. So I was able to get rid of all those expressions.

Ben one more thing please? So I understand correctly. You get the error message in ie6 >> you push ok >> and it finishes loading right? Or does it just completely abort? Because no matter what I do I can't duplicate this on my machine again.

 

Edit: oops I got my threads mixed up o well.

did you guys test any of this? I finally got wamp settup and set it to my virtual directory (which is cool). But I still cant run the php. I tried this simple one too but no go yet. http://kckb.wordpress.com/2009/06/08/wamp-server-and-htaccess-sef/

 

and I just tried the full tut from your link eddie and no go. I removed the # and added that bit to the .htacces. No luck. Anything you think Im missing? This would be very cool to have.

Yeah I realize testing that is a bit involved. Via this search I found some good results. I read through them (on my phone) and they look good. I will try out all those... http://www.google.com/m/search?oe=UTF-8&client=safari&hl=en&aq=f&oq=&aqi=-k0d0t0&fkt=3923&fsdt=14027&htf=&his=&q=php+in+html+in+wamp

 

I've never actually had a local server testing suite before. I just always used DW launch in browser and ignored the fact that my includes didn't show. But now it's most of this site so I can't just ignore it. It will be real nice if I can figure this out.

Alright! Man I haven't got excited like this since back in the day. I got it working! I found two ways to make it work. Im using the second one.

 

The reason this link http://www.phpmagicbook.com/allow-htaccess-and-mod-rewrite-in-wamp/#ixzz1D7thwkFX wasnt originally working for me was because my .htaccess code was php5. It works perfect if I changed it to just php. and took off the #.

 

The second way - the one i'm using was answered here http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4352483/html-not-parsing-as-php-in-wamp. See the last answer. open your httpd.conf file scroll down about 2/3 down and add the bit in bold

 

<IfModule mime_module>

AddType application/x-httpd-php .php

AddType application/x-httpd-php .html

AddType application/x-httpd-php .htm

AddType application/x-httpd-php .txt

</IfModule>

 

YES! My life just got better.
