I’ve made a new website in Local. Its a simple landing page so nothing complicated. I cannot open the site in local or the other site that is there still. It says this
'our PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.
Please check that the
mysqli PHP extension is installed and enabled.’
Previously it opened normally and worked well. I thought I’d change the name which I did and it stopped working, so I changed it back and it still won’t open. I am a beginner so please make explanations simple.
Have tried shutting down and reopening and opening a trail website i experimented with and that also won’t open whereas it did a few days ago. .
Local Version: Wordpress is latest version ending in 3.
Operating System (OS) and OS version: Windows 10 Firefox, but same in Edge and chrome.
Local does a pretty good job of scrubbing private info from the logs and the errors it produces, however there’s always the possibility that something private can come through. Because these are public forums, always review the screenshots you are sharing to make sure there isn’t private info like passwords being displayed.
