Checking System screen (missing Docker Machine config.json)

I recently downloaded Flywheel, but after much trying on my desktop and my laptop, I cannot get past the “Checking System” screen, although I let it run all night.
How can I proceed? I am running Mac os Mojave.

Hi @sns,

Sorry about that!

I recommend trying the steps here: How can I forcefully restart the Local by Flywheel VM?

If that doesn’t do the trick, please provide your local-by-flywheel.log file. See How do I retrieve Local's log file? for instructions on how to do so.

local-by-flywheel.log (24.2 KB)

Thanks for the log!

It looks like the config.json file is missing for Local’s Docker Machine.

Please try the following:

  1. Download the following JSON file: config.json (3.0 KB)
    • Note to other readers: The file above is specifically for @sns. You will need to adjust the paths accordingly.
  2. Move the downloaded JSON file into /Users/mr.biney/.docker/machine/machines/local-by-flywheel
  3. Restart Local

Thank you for your help, its working now
