Connection refused to mydomain.local

Issue Summary


Troubleshooting Questions

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

  • Are you able to create a new, plain WordPress site in Local and access it in a Browser?
    Just tried it and the answer is Yes


No particular info here, happens suddenly.

System Details

  • Which version of Local is being used?

  • What Operating System (OS) and OS version is being used?
    MacOS 10.13

  • Attach the Local Log. See this Community Forum post for instructions on how to do so:


  • Switch to nginx : no ok
    Local site with the issue is on custom conf. with Apache, tried to swith to nginx doesnt fix it.
    So for the plain one created for test I did the same and selected Apache and it works.

  • Switch to localhost instead of sitedomain
    Fix the issue, i can access to site and admin.
    But most of my image don’t show up in pages… so not really helpfull

My etc/hosts content (after testing to create a new plain WP local site as asked)

# Host Database
# localhost is used to configure the loopback interface
# when the system is booting.  Do not change this entry.
##       localhost broadcasthost
