php - Unable to access wordpress site on local host - err: This localhost page can’t be found


Hi All i am facing issue with wordpress installation.

I downloaded wordpress setup from and moved it in var/www/html but when i try to access it from localhost/wordpress. Iget the following error This localhost page can’t be found .

but when i try localhost/wordpress/wp-admin it redirects to my other project wp-admin like http://localhost/xyz/wp-login.php?redirect_to=http%3A%2F%2Flocalhost%2Fwordpress%2Fwp-admin%2F&reauth=1

I have not started with installation as yet. and i am able to access my other localhost wordpress sites. But any fresh downloaded wordpress site i am unable to access.

I am working in ubuntu

Things that i have tried renaming my .htaccess to .htaccess_temp - to ensure if it is ht access issue and i still get the same error.




Got it fixed. There was a hidden wp-config in my root folder which was interrupting the flow.. once deleted the link works fine
