Setup Wampserver on Windows 10

On installation, I was told I needed MSCVR100 and a quick search found this Stack Exchange post. I downloaded both x86 and x64 versions as one person commented both were needed.

Next, Wampserver would go to start up but only get as far as orange. To fix that, I clicked on the Wampserver icon in the system tray, then Apache > Service > Install Service. With that done, I went Apache > Service > Start/Resume Service (wasn't clickable previously) and that gave me the green light.

To amend the webroot, change the following lines to your chosen folder:

DocumentRoot "c:/wamp/www/"

and

<directory "c:/wamp/www/"></directory>

At that point, you should be done.
