    Hello Everbody

    I have problems to view my localhost website on my browser. Once I try to connect to :


    in ubuntu 16.04 , I am not able to view it and an error the Requested URL …etc…was not f ound on this server
    Some clarifications:

    I have installed LAMP yesterday on my Ubuntu (in dual boot with Windows, but having so far ONLY developed my websites in WAMP actually) and I wanted to start a new website dev with LAMP, this time…

    I have the latest mysql version installed. “Php my admin” is working, and the webserver is correctly showing up with the words”It works” once trying to connect to localhost only.

    The problem, as said is when trying to connect to my website in localhost that I correctly setup yesterday after having downloaded and install/configure WordPress from Ubuntu server with apt-get etc the website was configured as well. I can open phpmyadmin and the URL and HOME address are correctly set in the rows of “wp-options table” of my website database

    so what happen? Why I cant connect?

    After having installed all yesterday, I was able to open the dashboard. I just entered localhost/name of my website/wp-admin/ and I entered in the dashboard.
    I noticed, though. That the address of my localhost website was weird: instead of having localhost/mywebsite/
    I had localhost/wordpress/ xxx/ mywebsite ( another part that I dont remember and the name of my website)

    so I went to dashboard and I changed the name to the correct one (localhost/mywebsite) and of course then I understood I did a mess and I could not connect anymore
    I also followed the tips given here, adding those lines in wp-config.php but did not solve the issue

    I follwed the recommendations in

    but nothing.
    Any ideas? Clues? Suggestion? Thanks a lot in advance,
