Default WAMP phpMyAdmin problem, please help!

I've got both Apache services running with my XP WAMP setup (with Wordpress installed in C:\wordpress). The WAMP icon turns to green when I click on start WampServer. If I click on the Localhost option, I get the 'It works!' response every time, no problem.

When I click on phpMyAdmin option, however, I always get the dreaded '404 Not Found' error message. My efforts via YouTube videos regarding this problem helped me get rid of the hash tag in the 'mod_rewrite' line of the htpd.conf file. I can't seem to get any further via the YouTube videos. Hate to be a haunt, but can anyone help me with this one? WAMP is installed in my C:\wamp folder, if that's helpful.

In my C:\program files folder, I have an 'Apache Software Foundation' folder, nothing else related to Apache. In 'Services (Local)' Control Panel listings, the only one there is for Apache2.2. I had a free HTML4 media player that was working great for me for years, easy to maintain, but of course it won't work for me now. I don't have the money to rebuild other than this "so easy to setup & use" option that I can't succeed with.

I checked out 'WebSite Creator by CM4all' as I can use it for free via my webhosting provider. My website will then be obviously built with templates, AND the URL for my webhosting provider will be added at the end of my domain's URL. UGH! Anyone who visits can still use just MY URL, but they'll wind up seeing an add for my hosting company everytime.

I bought PROFESSIONAL WORDPRESS DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT, THIRD EDITION at my local B&N, and also now have the related code downloaded. I'm still hopeful I'll be able to rebuild my website locally, test it & make corrections, then upload it via FileZilla.

THANK YOU!

Postscript: I forgot to include the following program-versions of what I also have installed on my Windows XP (SP3) design-development machine. Here's the list:

WordPress version 3.5.1; Apache version 2.4.4; PHP version 5.4.16; MySQL version 5.6.12.

Thanks again for reading this.

Default Copy WHICH PHP files into c:\wamp folder?

I'm still unable to use WAMP. I visited WordPress support today. After installing WAMP, the advice to "Create a folder (in C:\wamp) and copy PHP files into it."

Is this reference to the PHP files in the c:\wordpress folder only? Or does it apply to the 1,000 plus PHP files in all the c:\wordpress folders? Also, wouldn't a specific folder name for the PHP files - no matter how many there actually should be - help the cause, or is that a non-issue that will never matter?

HTTP.EXE was loading twice, it seems, via wampserver. I changed the .exe file extension for the http.exe files in the xamp folder, c:\xamp. Now I only have one Apache service running, Apache 2.2. The wampserver icon remains orange, while it is reported as running. Before I prevented the xamp http.exe from running, that icon would turn green, and there would be two Apache services running. PHPMyAdmin didn't work then, and it's still not working at all now.

Thank you,

wampless
