Changed name of the site in locals now I can't access it anymore

Issue Summary

I changed the name of the site and domain just in locals and when trying to access the site it doesn’t work anymore. I tried changing the name and domain back and I get the same error.

Troubleshooting Questions

  • Does this happen for all sites in Local, or just one in particular? I just have the one

  • Are you able to create a new, plain WordPress site in Local and access it in a Browser?

I can create a new one but get the same error when I try to access it

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.

Hi @Jan22

If you create a new, blank site you still can’t access that either?
