Thanks for the reply. I have been upgrading regularly so it was probably the most recent version. I uninstalled and reinstalled Laragon twice and that did not fix it. I could not find a solution to the issue so restarted my project from zero using Local by Flywheel.
Most likely I caused the issue, perhaps by (previously) upgrading to the latest version of PHP. In the future I will be sure to create an archive of my WP site before I update any of the "moving parts".
I will be working on a Django site soon and I plan to try Laragon again for that.
