A happy new year to you all. I am trying to make a decentralised application. Everything was going well until I came across a snag. Metamask does not show localhost "7545" which I need to connect the client facing application to the local network. I would be grateful for your guidance in this respect. Thank you.
You have to configure a new network to connect to via Metamask. Open Metamask go to
settings > network > add network! and there add your new network. If it's a local node in RPC URL put: http://127.0.0.1:7545 and choose a name for it and save. Then go on the top menu of Metamask and choose your newly created network to be the host of the communication and that's it
