SSL Error in new drupal site

I’m creating a new drupal8 site, locally, to test some content not created with modules. I installed using acquia desktop dev2, and everything worked properly. I created a menu link that redirects to “myDrupalSite/sites/test/index.php”, but it seems like anything beyond the main site’s directory is giving the SSL error “This site can’t provide a secure connection”. I tried modifying the .htaccess to include the directories and the specific php file, but that isn’t working.

I just dropped that “test” directory into my /sites folder. I don’t know if that is an illegitimate method of including new content. Is there a proper way to do this or do I need a specific workaround for the error?
