Cannot create site from zip exported with WP Migrate

Trying to create a new site from a zip exported from my production site, using WP Migrate. Error quickly displays “Error importing site. We couldn’t figure out what to do with the import file provided”. Local log shows error “TypeError: e.forEach is not a function\n at %%appPath%%\main\importer\workers\analyzeImportWorker.js:1:1942”

System Details

  • Local Version: Version 8.1.0+6514

  • Operating System (OS) and OS version: Windows 11

Security Reminder
Local does a pretty good job of scrubbing private info from the logs and the errors it produces, however there’s always the possibility that something private can come through. Because these are public forums, always review the screenshots you are sharing to make sure there isn’t private info like passwords being displayed.
