Any setup steps for LocalWP on Fedora Workstation 40?


I recently moved from Ubuntu Linux over to Fedora.

LocalWP was working perfectly in Ubuntu but looks like Fedora is a bit more of a challenge.

I managed to download the .rpm and authenticate with my account.

However, when I try to pull my remote site from Wordpress Engine, I run into the following config issues:


Local ran into a problem when trying to update the hosts file

Is there any documentation for getting it set up on this distro, if it’s at all possible?


Hi, @danielrosehill. Have you tried the steps in this thread? It’s for Fedora 39 but may help for 40 too.

That seems to have fixed it. Many thanks!
