Enabling pretty permalinks on WAMP

When you install WAMP for the first time you will notice that .htaccess wont work. In simple language WordPress permalinks wont work. To get it working you will have to do some changes in Apache’s httpd.conf file. To do that click on the green WAMP icon on the quick launch bar  and then on Apache -> httpd.conf. The httpd.conf file will open in notepad. Search for the below line

#LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so

Remove the # tag so that this line is uncommented as shown below and save the file.

LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so

That’s it. The .htaccess files should start working now.
