We have installed SuiteCRM 8 from the download on site and extracted the download into the WAMP directory /www and all seems fine. Our install is running in Microsoft Windows.
After a false start by trying the version 7 install and not finding the install.php file, we found the correct documentation and have, as far as we can see, set the permissions and so on correctly,
Using MS Edge or Chrome, when we go in with the command localhost/suitecrm8/ it correctly displays the directory, so the links seem correct.
However, when we try to initiate the install, as instructed in the documentation, entering https://localhost/suitecrm8/ it brings up the ‘localhost refused to connect’ error.
Try as we might by googling etc… we cannot get this to work. We have checked the Virtual host config, modified the Apache config and so on. and PHP is running with all listed extensions.
Can anyone shed any light on what we are missing, which is probably something very simple but we are scratching out heads. As not Linux experts, there may be some of the instructions online which we have skipped as they are not directly aligned to Windows.
Any help gratefully received.
