Installed a new site via WPEngine zip file.
Can access the site ok, but in chrome WP-Admin is refused with:
This site can’t provide a secure connection
mimlocal.local sent an invalid response.
In Firefox dev edition:
Secure Connection Failed
An error occurred during a connection to mimicolocal.local:10030. SSL received a record that exceeded the maximum permissible length.
Error code: SSL_ERROR_RX_RECORD_TOO_LONG
The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified. Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.
Site is trusted in the Local console, which by definition should allow you to access wp-admin
How can you have a local development tool that doesn’t let you access admin?
I’m sure this used to work automatically by setting up SSL, but something appears to have changed?
- Does this happen for all sites in Local, or just one in particular?
New site created via WPEngine backup download import.
This seems to be the same issue as Accessing WP-Admin fails with SSL error but that’s now locked. Solutions there do not resolve this issue.
I checked port 80 using currports in Win 11, and the only process using port 80 is Locals Nginx itself.
Router mode is site domains. Tried testing local mode, but that failed to access it as well, so went back to site domains.
I have some other sites locally and I can use WordPress admin aok with them, even when not trusted.
This is quite frustrating. This is basic functionality that should just work ootb, instead I have to spend hours troubleshooting a tools issue just to get up an running with local dev.
I have a suspicion that this is due to a bug with creating sites from a WPEngine Zip file, as the other sites I created from basic WordPress when imported via plugin.
