Cant access websites after reinstalling local by flywheel

Hi there ,

So to have local by flywheel work on my MacBook Pro with OSX Mojave, I had to delete the old version of local by flywheel and virtual box; after this I installed the newest version of virtual box and after the 2.4.1 version of local by flywheel. After this local by flywheel was working.

But now the problem is that I don’t see the previously created websites that I have created with the old version.
When I create a new site with the new version of local by flywheel it gets saved in the Local Sites folder, where I still have the 2 websites from the previous version, yet I cant these sites under the local sites menu when I launch local by flywheel.

Is there a way I can have the new version of local by flywheel access my websites I created with the previous version ?


The sites most likely disappeared from the sidebar after deleting Local’s settings. Since you still have the previous sites you are able to do a folder import in Local. I think this link will help:

Hi there !

Thank you for the information.
It worked to recover one website, but with the other website I get an error message when I want to view it:

Configuration Error

Your wp-config.php file has an empty database table prefix, which is not supported.

Do you think this can be fixed somehow or I have to rebuild the site from scratch?
