For WordPress permalink structure to work, your wamp installation must have
mod_rewrite module enabled.
To enable the module, simply find your
httpd.conf file, search for
mod_rewrite and remove the hash (#) in front of the line. Save your configuration file and restart apache. Voila! Permalinks are working now.
