Received the ‘Uh oh! Could not update hosts file’ error when pulling in a site from wpengine to my local computer. It is definitely being blocked by my work, but I CAN edit the hosts file myself.
Is there a way to manually edit the hosts file once I pull a site from wp engine?
- Does this happen for all sites in Local, or just one in particular?
- Are you able to create a new, plain WordPress site in Local and access it in a Browser?
Be in a domain environment with firewall/antivirus.
Which version of Local is being used?
What Operating System (OS) and OS version is being used?
Win 10 Pro
Attach the Local Log. See this Community Forum post for instructions on how to do so:
