    Try using XAMPP from ApacheFriends.
    A quick Google search should provide a link.

    Mine is in C://xampp/htdocs/ But not sure if that is default. Check C://Program Files/XAMPP/htdocs.
    You must start the service first. Then go to http://localhost/ to see the XAMPP welcome page.

    Did you uninstall WAMP first? Thats likely why you got the same message. WAMP could be running apache still. Remove WAMP. Then start Apache in xampp. Your files go in the htdocs folder within the xampp folder.

    The "It works!" message means that the apache server is working correctly...

    The "It works!" page is store in a html page, and it is not necessary that it must be in the www(root of the webserver), there is one module on the apache call mod_alias which allows a specific file/folder to be appear like they are in the server root..

    One good example of mod_alias module, is in the installation of XAMPP, XAMPP comes with phpmyadmin, and it is not in the server root, but you can access it by http://localhost/phpmyadmin

    I would suggest that you place a file into your www and test it first...
