Can't download from Flywheel

I have an issue with downloading a website form Flywheel. The download is 20GB and it gets stuck at 421MB and don’t move forward. I’ve done the pull twice and always it get stuck at 421MB

My local app version is 5.10.5
I’m running windows 10

Here is my log file: https://wtools.io/paste-code/b5tP

Are you using Local’s Connect feature, or manually downloading a backup from Flywheel’s server?

At 20Gb, that may be too large of a site to use Connect on Flywheel’s infrastructure. Can you try manually downloading a backup from the Flywheel Hosting dashboard? Here’s a help doc about downloading a backup from Flywheel:

From there, you should be able to drag and drop the zip onto Local to import it. Can you give that a try and let us know how it goes?

OK thanks for your reply will try manual download.

I’ve tried manual import, but this is what I get. See the image attached.

Please help

An ENOENT error is the computer saying “Error NO ENTry”.

In this case, Local is trying to import the site, and for some reason, it thinks it should be able to copy that file (I can’t see the whole name, but here’s part of it: ...file\scan-m...8Z.json)

The word “scan” makes me think of a malware scanner or some sort of log. One option you might take for such a large site is to manually import the site. That process might be more effort (but should work!), and will look something like:

  1. Create a new, plain WP site in Local
  2. Extract the site backup somewhere temporary, like your desktop
  3. Copy whatever site files you need from the desktop folder to the Local site folder
  4. Copy the sql file from the backup to the site folder
  5. Import the DB
  6. Search and replace the urls within the database

For the DB steps, you can right-click on the site in Local and select “Open Site Shell.” From there, run these commands, updating the values as necessary:

wp db import databasedump.sql
wp search-replace '/example.com' '/example.local'

I have downloaded backup from flyweel, extracted it but it looks like it is missing some folders. Look at the structure:

I have run: wp db import backup.sql
But here is the error I get:
ERROR 2003 (HY000): Can’t connect to MySQL server on ‘localhost’ (10061)

My local app is running and the website is live.
