Wordpress in laragon
Hi, I want to install the wordpress locally with Laragon. I used quick create and installed a fresh Wordpress in WWW directory. But when I go to wordpress_Goodnews.dev in my browser it doesn't show any thing:
This page isn’t working
wordpress_Goodnews.dev didn’t send any data.
What should I do?
@mamad86 : What is actually the name of the project you created?
Some images will be helpful.
The name is correct. I just installed wordpress with laravel quick create and directory is created. How can I run it? clicking on Menu->www->wordpress_Goodnews direct me to wordpress_Goodnews.dev in my browser. Image for what part?!
@mamad86 : Creating Wordpress site is easy. Here's how:
- Click Menu > Quick create > Wordpress
- Choose a name, such as
- Laragon will download Wordpress, unzip and put it to
www\mysite. It also create a database name
Then, you'll have a Wordpress site at: http://mysite.dev
I exactly did these steps but I got the page in the picture...
@mamad86 : I wonder what is using port 80. I don't think the result is coming from Laragon. Can you try:
- Find out which program is using port 80 by using Menu > Tools > netstat
ping mysite.devand give me the result.
TCP 0.0.0.0:80 0.0.0.0:0 LISTENING 5836
@mamad86 : It's the Apache in Laragon. Very strange. I think you may go with Nginx.
Laravel works fine and problem is with wordpress. In laravel I use php artisan serve and localhost:8000 and clicking on Web button in Laragon does not work(it directs me to localhost:8080). Maybe I should change some configuration.
I had the same problem. My solution was to replace _ (underscore-sign) with something else (like -) in the folders name.
Hope it helps.
Thanks, but it didn't solve the problem.
Have you changed any settings during or after the install? I wonder if uninstalling and reinstalling using the defaults would work? What a puzzle. Sorry you are having a hard time.
@DPSchn Your solution worked for me. Thanks!
