ESP8266 Web Server implementation with Arduino Uno

Hello,

I am trying to implement the WifiEsp.h library on my ESP8266. I am trying to use this code to get my esp8266 to act as a WEbserver and connect to my WIFI but it keeps printing failed to connect to Wifi name. However, when I use my AT commands test code I wrote, it connects to the wifi. Kindly help me please it’s for my final year project. The code is below:

#include "WiFiEsp.h"

// Emulate Serial1 on pins 2/3 if not present
#ifndef HAVE_HWSERIAL1
#include "SoftwareSerial.h"
SoftwareSerial Serial1(2, 3); // RX, TX
#endif

char ssid [] = "E2FB Hyperoptic 1Gbs Broadband";            // your network SSID (name)
char pass [] = "x6h4b9uj";        // your network password
int status = WL_IDLE_STATUS;     // the Wifi radio's status
int reqCount = 0;                // number of requests received

WiFiEspServer server(80);


void setup()
{
  // initialize serial for debugging
  Serial.begin(9600);
  // initialize serial for ESP module
  Serial1.begin(9600);
  // initialize ESP module
  WiFi.init(&Serial1);

  // check for the presence of the shield
  if (WiFi.status() == WL_NO_SHIELD) {
    Serial.println("WiFi shield not present");
    // don't continue
    while (true);
  }

  // attempt to connect to WiFi network
  while ( status != WL_CONNECTED) {
    Serial.print("Attempting to connect to WPA SSID: ");
    // Connect to WPA/WPA2 network
    status = WiFi.begin(ssid, pass);
    Serial.println(status);
    }
  
  //}

  Serial.println("You're connected to the network");
  printWifiStatus();
  
  // start the web server on port 80
  server.begin();
}


void loop()
{
  // listen for incoming clients
  WiFiEspClient client = server.available();
  if (client) {
    Serial.println("New client");
    // an http request ends with a blank line
    boolean currentLineIsBlank = true;
    while (client.connected()) {
      if (client.available()) {
        char c = client.read();
        Serial.write(c);
        // if you've gotten to the end of the line (received a newline
        // character) and the line is blank, the http request has ended,
        // so you can send a reply
        if (c == '\n' && currentLineIsBlank) {
        Serial.println("Sending response");
          
          // send a standard http response header
          // use \r\n instead of many println statements to speedup data send
          client.print(
            "HTTP/1.1 200 OK\r\n"
            "Content-Type: text/html\r\n"
            "Connection: close\r\n"  // the connection will be closed after completion of the response
            "Refresh: 20\r\n"        // refresh the page automatically every 20 sec
            "\r\n");
          client.print("<!DOCTYPE HTML>\r\n");
          client.print("<html>\r\n");
          client.print("<h1>Hello World!</h1>\r\n");
          client.print("Requests received: ");
          client.print(++reqCount);
          client.print("
\r\n");
          client.print("Analog Input: ");
          //client.print(analogRead(0));
          client.print("
\r\n");
          client.print("</html>\r\n");
          break;
        }
        if (c == '\n') {
          // you're starting a new line
          currentLineIsBlank = true;
        }
        else if (c != '\r') {
          // you've gotten a character on the current line
          currentLineIsBlank = false;
        }
      }
    }
    // give the web browser time to receive the data
    delay(10);

    // close the connection:
    client.stop();
    Serial.println("Client disconnected");
  }
}


void printWifiStatus()
{
  // print the SSID of the network you're attached to
  Serial.print("SSID: ");
  Serial.println(WiFi.SSID());

  // print your WiFi shield's IP address
  IPAddress ip = WiFi.localIP();
  Serial.print("IP Address: ");
  Serial.println(ip);
  
  // print where to go in the browser
  Serial.println();
  Serial.print("To see this page in action, open a browser to http://");
  Serial.println(ip);
  Serial.println();
}

Hey Juraj I have edited as requested

Hey I figured it out, got the code running. I appreciate the effort Juraj!
