    • Laragon v4.0.10
    • Access to Host file is write protected.
    • Win7

    Was able to successfully install by commenting out the following code in generated wp-config.php:

    if ( !defined('WP_CLI') ) {
    define('WP_SITEURL', $_SERVER['REQUEST_SCHEME'] . '://' . $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']);
    define('WP_HOME', $_SERVER['REQUEST_SCHEME'] . '://' . $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']);

    Is the removal of the php code in the wp-config.php going to give me some issues somewhere else?


    p.s.- After installing WP with full paths, I got around the 404 problems by adding the path into the wp-config.php :
