Hey Ishtar

Try restarting the WAMP server and see if that fixes it. Also look in your developer tools console and PHP logs and see what errors popup. I had a lot of problems with WAMP over the years so a few years back I moved to MAMP Pro 4.0 and my local development has been smooth sailing with C5 installs.

Dear StewBlack23,

Thank you for your answer! I installed Mamp and had the same problem, so the problem is somewhere else. Where could I find the logs, I couldn't find it at the Server configuration: when I click on PHPinfo under tools I don't see log information?
Do you hae an idea what is the problem? Maybe the link to the dasboard somewhere?
Many thanks,

it sounds as if you have a page rendering problem.

Did you set a canonical URL during install? You can check by looking in the file application\config\generated_overrides\site.php (if it exists) You will see a canonical url entry.

Also do you have an htaccess file at the root of your site? If yes what's in it?

When you try to reach your login page is there an index.php in the URL? So is ithttp://yoursite/index.php/login... ORhttp://yoursite/login ? Try both and see if it works.

If you don't see the index.php it means you activated pretty URL but didn't put the proper code in your htaccess file.

Thank you, Mnakalay,

Yes I make a canonical url: in the site.php is:
'canonical_url' => 'https://localhost/workshop/',
'canonical_url_alternative' => 'https://localhost/workshop/'

The root is in this case: C:/WAMP/www/namesite? Then there is no htaccess in it. Or should I look somewhere else?

Yes, there is an index.php. This link didn't works:http://localhost/workshop/login...
This link works:http://localhost/workshop/index.php/login... But after put in username and password there is an error: ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED Pag is not available.

Do you have an idea how to solve this?
Many thanks,

I am not sure but the problem might come from the https in your canonical URL. Since you are in a local environment, you most likely don't have an SSL certificate and should use http instead. Your browser might be blocking anything with a password on a page declared as https when it is not.

Replace https with http and save then make sure you navigate to your site using http and not https and see if it fixes the problem.
