One or two sentence summary of the issue.

Troubleshooting Questions

  • 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?


Describe the steps that others can take to replicate this issue. If you have screenshots that can help clarify what is happening, please include them!

System Details

  • Which version of Local is being used?

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

    • For example: macOS Catalina or Windows 10 Professional
  • Attach the Local Log. See this Help Doc for instructions on how to do so:

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.

Hello there @GILM - welcome to the Local Community! :wave:

Can you provide a little more information about your Local setup for this site?


  • Web server
  • PHP version
  • Database

Have you tried to stop & start the site? You can also try to shut Local down and open it back up.

Have you tried to create a new site with a different name, such as test? Does that work?

Are you seeing any errors inside of Local?

Thank you!

Are you seeing any errors inside of Local ? None ! can we share with you my setup ? Or where can I find and send logs to you ?

Hi @GILM - thank you for providing that context.

Nothing stands out about the configuration for the site, so yes, please send along your Local logs!
