A couple of issues with Local (Beta) 5.0.5+900

Clay and company,

Testing out Local (Beta) 5.0.5+900. First off, very nice. Love the speed improvements. Thanks for working to make a great product even better.

After pulling a Production site from flywheel I got fatal errors related to the plugin, Webmaster User Role, I plugin I use on several client sites to give some notion of Admin access without giving access to everything available with Administrator access. I’ve never had any issues with the plugin before and it has caused no problems with Local by Flywheel previously. Webmaster User Role can be found at - https://tylerdigital.com/products/webmaster-user-role/
Removing that plugin from the plugins folder allowed the WordPress login screen to load. Once at the dashboard there are 2 errors that relate to node components:

  1. /node_modules/handlebars/dist/handlebars.min.js is missing.

  2. /node_modules/font-awesome/css/font-awesome.min.css is missing.

I’m not sure what those are related to.

Let me know if you need any more info on these issues.


Hey @swest

Local Lightning currently defaults to PHP 7.3 so it might be a compatibility issue with that version of PHP and the plugin. You could check with the plugin developer to confirm.

Previous versions of Local defaulted to PHP 7.2. The ability to change PHP versions is coming in the near future so feel free to give that a try once the feature is released!
