Yes it did: once I'd renamed my folder that was causing the problem each time.
@bantya See you in Thailand!
The problem was in the auto.openssl.conf file which Laragon creates. I had a directory in my document root with an invalid character in its name, which got carried through into the DNS entries in this file, and clearly this could not be processed. I've renamed that directory and all is ok now.
Thanks for the pointers!
Thanks. Done the symlink for now and works fine.
Looks like your connection to Laragon was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
