Homepage gets downloaded, but rest of the site works fine (solved)


Recommended Posts

Just added one folder between root and the site and it started to work. Probably could have fixed through .htaccess as well, but what ever works.


I just did a local copy of a Processwire site and I run it on XAMP on windows.

Admin and rest of the site work just fine, but whenever I try to go on homepage, the browser downloads the index.php at the root of PW instead of running it as PHP.

Been trying to google about it, but after a day of poking around it I haven't been able to figure it out.

PW version is 3.0.210, PHP is 8.2.4 running on XAMP.

Probably a mistake when configuring host.

  • Edit C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts and add line: my-project.local.fr
  • Edit xampp\apache\conf\extra\httpd-vhosts.conf and add:
    <VirtualHost *:80>
    		# Directory that contains index.php
            DocumentRoot "E:\src-processwire"
            ServerName my-project.local.fr
            <Directory "E:\src-processwire">
                Options FollowSymLinks Indexes
                Order allow,deny
                Allow from all
                AllowOverride All
                Require all granted

Restart XAMPP Apache server and go to http://my-project.local.fr/
