How to fix WAMP’s missing localhost in URLs
Applies to: WAMPSERVER 3.0.6 64-bit
You’ve probably run into this problem a bunch, where you have a few projects located in the www folder, and when you go to http://localhost/ or http://127.0.0.1/ and click on your project name it just points to http://mysite/ instead of http://localhost/mysite/. Super annoying to be manually typing it in every time. But with the latest version of WAMP Server (3.0.6 at the time of writing this, there’s a setting you can turn on to easily change this:
It is now configurable from the Wamp Aestan Tray menu.
- Right-click on wamp icon in your system tray on the right.
- Go to “wamp settings”
- Enable “Add localhost in URL”
- If you see the green tick mark, it is enabled.
Now refresh your localhost home page and check URLs. It should be working perfectly.
In older versions of WAMP:
Change this line:
$suppress_localhost = true;
$suppress_localhost = false;
