To test my code an Apache, PHP, mySQL internet accessible website, my local testing server is WAMP. Is there a way configure my project so that the excess folders in the root of the documents folder are not uploaded.
Not that I know of. I generally keep all the unneeded/misc files in a separate folder. Then you can upload the whole site and just delete the excess. Or you can move the excess out of the document root and just upload the document root.
