System Details

  • Which version of Local is being used?
    version 7.0.2+6395

  • What Operating System (OS) and OS version is being used?
    I am using Windows 11.

  • Attach the Local Log. See this Help Doc for instructions on how to do so: (3.1 KB)

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.

Nevermind, I was using a space in my username while creating the website,that’s what was causing the error.
