500 Server error and SSL doesn't have the proper privileges to access? Windows 10

I had a problem with my first install of Local so I uninstalled it completely, deleted all the files I could associated with it, including the local-sites folder in appdata and the virtual box installation etc.

I reinstalled it successfully but it’s telling me that it can’t set the cert to trust because it needs admin priveleges.

It also won’t bring up the website, adminer, or the wp-admin page.

It just gives me a 500 server error.

Log file is attached to this post. local-by-flywheel.log (12.7 KB)

Still can’t get apache working but saw this forum post and decided to try ngnix and it worked!

A lot of people with similar problems have issues with their .htaccess files but I can’t tell if mine is messed up. I don’t see anything in the log file about it being invalid though.

Can you open your .htaccess with a text editor?

Yes. I can open it with notepad etc.

You could try to set it to the standard

# BEGIN WordPress
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
# END WordPress 

and then continue from there (if you don’t have any complicated rules set up).
Apache should work again with this settings in .htaccess.

I’ll try that, thanks

That did not work but deleting the .htaccess did for some reason. I’m having other problems though.
