Currently in the process of teaching myself solidity. However, I’ve been met with my first hurdle. I’ve written my first “Hello World” smart contract in remix (**using http version:** [**http://remix.ethereum.org**](http://remix.ethereum.org/#optimize=false&runs=200&evmVersion=null&version=soljson-v0.8.4+commit.c7e474f2.js)). I am planning on using a web3 provider like Ganache. However, when I go to connect to ganache (clicking web3 provider) and enter in the Web3 Provider Endpoint from Ganache, I am met with the dreaded “*Not possible to connect to the Web3 provider. Make sure the provider is running, a connection is open (via IPC or RPC) or that the provider plugin is properly configured*” error.
Does anyone have a fix for this? All I can see on forums is that I need to use the HTTP version of remix, but I’m already using this. I’ve also changed my Brave Browser settings to turn off “**Upgrade connections to HTTPS**”.
Thanks in advance and sorry if I’m asking a stupid question ( I didn’t see any duplicates, hence my post).
