502 error on new site default settings. I've tried waiting a while and nothing changes. Cant open the wp dashboard

Issue Summary

502 error on new site default settings.

Troubleshooting Questions

  • Does this happen for all sites in Local, or just one in particular? This is my first wp site

  • Are you able to create a new, plain WordPress site in Local and access it in a Browser? This was my second attempt. I deleted the site and then recreated a new one. This is my firs time doing so. The problem persists


Describe the steps that others can take to replicate this issue. If you have screenshots that can help clarify what is happening, please include them!

System Details

  • Which version of Local is being used? 6.6.0+6231

  • What Operating System (OS) and OS version is being used? macOS Mojave version 10146

  • Attach the Local Log. See this Help Doc for instructions on how to do so:

Security Reminder

Local does a pretty good job of scrubbing private info from the logs and the errors it produces, however there’s always the possibility that something private can come through. Because these are public forums, always review the screenshots you are sharing to make sure there isn’t private info like passwords being displayed.

Hi @malena4406 I think the issue might be a conflict with Mojave being an older OS. If you change your PHP version to 7.3.5 can you create a site?
