Wamp Url Rewrite Error: The Requested Url Was Not Found In This Server

I received this error after setting up my CakePHP with Url Rewrite in Wamp Server 2.5, which includes Apache 2.4.9:

“the requested url /wamp/cake/app/webroot/index.php was not found on this server.”

After reviewing my .htaccess configuration I found the error in a missing RewriteBase directive.

If your Cake installation folder were /yourbaseaddress/cake/, your RewriteBase directives should look like


<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine on
RewriteBase /yourbaseaddress/cake/
RewriteRule ^$ webroot/ [L]
RewriteRule (.*) webroot/$1 [L]



<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /yourbaseaddress/cake/
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule ^ index.php [L]

How to configure configure a WAMP server to support Firebird SQL

Adding Firebird support to your WAMP installation is an straightforward step by step process.
I have found an excelent post at Lorenzo’s Alberton blog. This article really helped me to go directly to the point, even seven years after being published.
Just as a litle contribution, I’d like to mention php.ini file is located into the Apache’s bin folder.
In my installation, this folder is C:\wamp\bin\apache\apache2.2.22\bin

After uncommenting the line


and restarting apache, it just worked!
Let´s see the Wamp server dashboard to check the newly loaded module.

You can also check your phpinfo script to see your PHP installation is now Interbase (Firebird) compliant.
