This means we don't have to put our files in c:\wamp64\www.
Edit Wamp config file: C:\wamp64\bin\apache\apache2.4.37\conf\extra\httpd-ssl.conf
Create a virtualhost at end of file (in this case pointing to the public folder of a Laravel setup) e.g.:
<VirtualHost *:443>
DocumentRoot "c:/wamp64/www/Projects/MYPROJECTNAME/public"
ServerName MYPROJECTNAME.local
ServerAdmin xxx@xxx.com
<Directory "c:/wamp64/www/MYPROJECTNAME/public">
AllowOverride All
Require local
</Directory>
SSLEngine on
SSLCertificateFile "c:/wamp64/bin/apache/apache2.4.37/conf/key/certificate.crt"
SSLCertificateKeyFile "c:/wamp64/bin/apache/apache2.4.37/conf/key/private.key"
</VirtualHost>
Restart Wamp services
Add a hosts entry pointing to your custom domain in C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts: MYPROJECTNAME.local
