Hi I’m running on Windows 10 and following the setup instructions located here: https://github.com/freeCodeCamp/freeCodeCamp/blob/master/docs/how-to-setup-freecodecamp-locally.md

I’ve managed to get to the part npm run develop but it seems to get stuck after it’s connected to the database.

I can successfully go to http://localhost:3000/explorer/ but when I try going to http://localhost:8000/ I get a “This site can’t be reached localhost refused to connect” error.

After that, I was able to access localhost:8000.
Also in my git bash terminal, now I see this:
