    Re: I don't know how to fix this?

    It would help if you gave a bit more information....

    I am assuming from the http://localhost address this is something you are developing locally and are getting this problem when running / debugging the website.

    Beyond that though we have no idea at all what is going wrong or what could be the issue.

    Somethings that might be useful to tell us however...

    What you are actually doing.
    What the website is developed in.
    What you are using as a web server.
    Have you checked the webserver is running.
    Have you checked the webserver is listening on the port you are browsing to.
    Are there any debug messages or errors in whatever development environment you are using, assuming you are using one.
    What you have done, other than looking on google, to try and solve this.
    What google told you to try, if you tried it, and when it didn't work was there any change in how it failed or the error messages.

    Just showing a screenshot that basically says "something is wrong" and expecting people to be able to debug your issue is pretty much asking for the impossible.

    Re: I don't know how to fix this?

    My apologies...frustration set in. I'm trying to get back into Software Development as a web developer. I'm trying to retrain myself in an attempt to re-enter the IT Industry as a Web Developer. I'm using VS Code to redesign a website that I had someone build for me. For some reason I had this working before using Chrome, which is what I want to use. Hopefully this helps. If you need more specific info...let me know!

    As far as a web server goes, I'm just using my laptop to develop this.

    Thanks

    What web server software are you running on your laptop? If the answer is you don't know, then that almost certainly means you aren't running anything, and therefore any attempt to access localhost:SomePortNumber via http(s) will never work until you set one up.

    If you have no webserver install this will never execute maybe the webserver is on a different port like http://localhost:8080/ or maybe your browser is blocking it somehow or even a virus killer will also sometime block if, also check your hosts file maybe localhost is pointed to a different address.

    May i sugest a good server for testing a website
    https://www.apachefriends.org/ it's easy to setup and works out of the box I use it all the time for testing my php sites.

    Good look

    Re: I don't know how to fix this?

    VS Code has an extension called Live Server by Ritwick Dey. If you aren't doing any backend development yet and it is only frontend development, I would suggest installing it and running it (there is a little "Go Live" button in the bottom-right after installation).

    What this will do is spin up a simple NodeJS server so that you can test your website as if it being served via a traditional server (e.g. IIS, NGINX, etc.).

    However, if you are trying to do backend development then you will need to setup your own local server and this will largely depend on what you're using for your backend architecture (e.g. .NET, NodeJS, Go, PHP, etc.).
