[SOLVED] Stuck on Downloading WordPress

What issue or error are you experiencing?

Stuck on Download WordPress

I have tried the following from past posts and have had no luck:

  • Re-installing after deleting previous installation files
  • Factory wipe laptop and installing local again
  • Installing an older version < 8.0 (not working) and updating (updater also does not work for me)
  • Adding a new site whilst the current one downloads WordPress (used to work in the past on my old laptop - not working anymore)
  • Checking host file so it is not read-only
  • Changing server type and php versions
  • Changing router setting to local host
  • Disabled all firewalls

What steps can be taken to replicate the issue? Feel free to include screenshots, videos, etc

Simply + new site

System Details

  • Local Version:

  • Operating System (OS) and OS version:

Windows 10

Local Logs

Attach your Local Logs here (Help Doc - Retrieving Local’s Log)

Security Reminder
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.

SOLVED: The solution is on my blog as I know I will have to refer to this in future!!!
