Hi,

I have a fully functioning SS website. Decided to change host/developer. Received the files from developer.

Have enabled Wamp64. It seems like the site folders could be dropped into the localhost/silverstripe/ folder and I'd be able to access the files in local cms. That does not seem to work. I followed some of the video tutorials, and tried to upload a new copy of SS to host the existing site. Windows gave me an error stating SS was already installed. Is this a difference between Mac/Windows?

Can someone point me to the right place?

Thank you,

Trevor
