Hey Matt

It is likely that you have selected a OneDrive version of your documents folder ie. not locally. Make sure you save your index.php file on C:\Users\USER\Documents\sites\testsite. Then make your WAMP Web Server document root matches the same path.

Windows defaults to displaying your OneDrive documents folder in the cloud, if you have OneDrive installed.
