Hi everyone, i just downloaded wampp and localwp and am now having the same issue with both. when i go to test local host site this comes up
"Not Found
The requested URL was not found on this server.

Apache/2.4.54 (Win64) PHP/8.0.26 mod_fcgid/2.3.10-dev Server at practicewordpress.local Port 80"

this happens when i try out my wampp local host and when i click on wpadmin on localwp. i checked to make sure port 80 wasnt being used on skype and it wasnt. its being used for apache. only problem i can think is that in the task manager under the port thats being used for apache is that it says UAC VIRTUALIZATION : NOT ALLOWED.
anyone had this happen before or might have an advice on a solution? i looked online about the UAC virtualization and read that its not accessible on my version of windows 10.

ps: sorry if this is hard to understand this is pretty new to me.

WordPress works perfectly well under Wampserver (Wamp, not Wampp), but, as with all hosts, only if you're in a VirtualHost, and you have absolutely no need for localwp to do this.
