Which directory do you need to create the index.php for slim to work? Trying to set up a wamp server on a local host.

I followed the directions on the slim website but i get a 404 error for the hello world script.

Hi William,

You should be able to install Slim directly into the project directory, since you won't necessarily be using Slim for every project on your server. It will need to be included in the autoload.php file, so make sure you do a composer require and select "Slim/Slim". Although, if you are receiving a rendered 404 error page, it sounds like you may already have it installed! What is the URL you are entering?
