I am having issues with Local on a Windows 10 machine.
I firstly installed Local directly onto my windows 10 machine and made the first couple of sites no problem at all.
I then tried to make another site and was presented with a 404… after reading some articles I was able to solve this by changing the preferences to local instead of domain.
However I was then having issues logging into one of my sites so I decided to uninstall local and start again. This however has caused more problems than it has solved.
I now get an error message everytime I try to install a site and when I look in my “Local Sites” folder all my old sites are there even though they were deleted, however they are unavailable in Local. Is it ok to delete these files?
I was reading some articles in an attempt to fix these issues and I saw some saying that VirtualBox was needed to install local. Is this still the case as I was not prompted to do so when installing? Is this recommended?
I feel I have got myself in a bit of a mess and need some assistance and pointed in the right direction. Hopefully someone can help shed some light on my failure to get this to work for me as I think the software is great for developing sites.
