I’m using 2 computers: a MacBook pro 16 2019 and iMac 27 2020. Both are running the latest Local 6.3.0+5756. Both are running the latest MacOS Monterey Beta 12.3
I’ve created a cloud backup from the MacBook via Google Drive, which worked fine. I then go to the iMac and create a site from that backup. The site is created without errors, but it cannot be accessed. I get errors such as 502 request error. The “WordPress version” appears as constantly loading.
I’ve tried changing the PHP version, Nginx/Apache, changing Site Domains → Localhost, restarting Local, restarting the computer, tried 3-4 times to create the site from backup, nothing worked.
One of the errors seen:
It seems wp-load.php is missing.
Looking at the folder contents in Local Sites, I think a lot of files are missing: there’s no wp-includes folder and various other files.
I tried copying these missing files and wp-includes manually from the old site (macbook) to the new site. What happens is that I can access the site but I see a WordPress installer that’s asking me to configure WordPress from scratch. If I do, none of my data is there - it’s an empty wp install.
