You’re using WampServer and you may of recently moved your local host website files into OneDrive.
You now receive the error:
( ! ) Warning: Unknown: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in Unknown on line 0
( ! ) Fatal error: Unknown: Failed opening required ‘D:/OneDrive/WAMP/WWW/site/index.php’ (include_path=’.;C:\php\pear’) in Unknown on line 0

The problem is probably caused by your local WampServer’s PHP being unable to work with OneDrive.
The solution is to upgrade the version of PHP for your WampServer.
To do this, visit and download a more recent version of PHP, from from 7.2.25 onwards. Once the .exe downloads, open it, and follow the prompts.
You may be prompted that your version of WampServer is not compatible with the PHP upgrage package.
The solution to this is to download a newer version of WampServer through an upgrade package. Download Wampserver update 3.2.0, run the file, then run the PHP updater.
If, when you go to start WampServer again, you receive an error about a missing images_on.bmp file, simply duplicate c:\wamp\images_off.bmp into c:\wamp\images_on.bmp, and try again.
