Wordpress dashboard disappeared - I downloaded Wordpress locally on my computer successfully, but it was gone next day.

I downloaded from Serverpress. I made the dev. site a favorite. When I went looking for it the next day, it could not be found. Can someone tell me how to locate it? I have Windows 10.

A couple of questions:

  1. is your local sever on when you searched for the local site?

  2. is this just the dashboard, can you still login?

  3. Did you change any database options in your install?

Thanks for responding:

1) not sure. How do you turn on your local server?

2) yes, this is dashboard. I can't find it, so I can't try to log in

3) I don't believe so

have you reviewed the docs from serverPress?

this may be the issue you are having windows-10-and-localhost-is-blank

Reviewing the docs is always the best place to start when there are issues.

I hope this helps.

Thanks, but I didn't upgrade To windows 10, so i don't think it would apply. Where can I I find the local server on my computer?

Do you not have Windows 10?
