Hello, I used Backupbuddy to create a zip file. I moved the zipfile to Local by Flywheel on my computer to create local “staging” site for a client and accidentally ended up moving the entire site to my local computer. How can I revert the site to the original hosted site? All the files are still on the original hosting service. When I stop the site on my Local computer it throws a local router error.
I’m at a loss of how to reactivate the original site.
It sounds like the Local site may be using the same domain as the live site.
Here’s how you can fix it:
- Start the site in Local
- Right-click on the site in the sidebar and go to “Change Domain”
- Enter a new domain such as
- Provide your password if prompted
- Check the live site

Glad to hear it! Thanks for following up
