I’ve been working on my site by using Loccal Machne for a copule months and it’s been working just fine until Thursday when, for some reason, it started loading slowly. It further worsened starting yesterday as slow as 20-30 secconds every time when I clicked on something.
So I tried clearing some memory, deleted some unneccessary files, defragmented to no avail.
I also frequently got Local Router Error messagge.
So I thought maybe it’s server issue so I created a demo site in my account, then tried to push it to that demo site to test it. I was able to successfully push it the first time but for some reason, I couldnt open it. I forgot to jot down the error message but something to do with the server.
So I deleted the demo site with the intention to redo the entire process, created a new demo site. And as i tried to push my local site from Local again, it got stuck at Checkiing Site Compatibility and I can’t move beyond that.
At one time, inside the Local Machine UI, it suddeny showed a message saying it can only work with WordPress, which appeared to me that Local was seeing my site as a non-WordPress application, which is strange. Anyway, I kept trying different things, like stop then start site again, close Local and then reopen it, or shut down my laptop and reboot, etc etc but nothing work.
I’m not a developer so whenever creating a new local site, I always go with the Preferred setting, never customize it.
