Can't upload theme

Trying to upload my theme. CLick on “upload theme” and nothing happens. See screenshot.

Tried refreshing, nothing. I’m on Windows 10 Home, using the default install (nginx etc).


This seems like a JavaScript error. You can check your browser’s console for more information.

Please see

THe only error is:
Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 (Not Found) - wp-emoji-release.min.js

There’s a possibility that the installation didn’t complete.

Can you try creating a brand new site in Local and see if this still happens?

I gave up. I’ve been trying for a week to get Local running and failed every single time. I’ve uninstalled/ reinstalled several times, tried all sorts of various site combinations (apache/nginx, different php versions etc) and nothing works. I really, really wanted to like Local but it is far too much work.


Sorry to hear!

We can set up an appointment to have a remote desktop session so I can take a closer look into this. If you’re interested, let me know!
