Error after updating to Version 8.0.2+6509

What issue or error are you experiencing?

Upgrading to Local Version 8.0.2+6509, starting an nginx site there is a popup error

"Uh-oh! Unable to start site.

Error: EPERM: operation not permitted, copyfil c:\users\user\appdata\local\programs\local\resources\extraResources\route…\errors.conf → c:\users\user\appdata\roaming\Local\run\router\nginx\conf\includes\errors.conf"

If I start a 2nd site, I receive another error:

"Uh-oh! Unable to start site

Error: EEXIST: file already exists, mkdir ‘c:\users\user\appdata\roaming\Local\run\router\nginx\conf\includes’"

Both sites do load and I can login without an error.

What steps can be taken to replicate the issue? Feel free to include screenshots, videos, etc

Upgrade to Version 8.0.2+6509 then start an nginx site. The errors may occur, the sites may load okay, and the status color to the left of the site name in the main Local window may stay grey.

For the EPERM error you might start here:

For performance issues you might check our doc below, notably the two items for Windows users specifically:

If you’re still having issues with a specific site, but not a new blank site, you might try reimporting it like this:

  • Locate the site files on your machine, and save a copy of them to your desktop. If you click Go to Site Folder under your site name it should take you right to where they are located.
  • Once you have those copied, completely delete the site from Local
  • Restart Local/your machine
  • Reimport the site back into Local. You can refer here on how to Restore from only Local site files

Hi @Nick-B the linked EPERM error is about a hosts file, which is unrelated the EPERM error in my case.

The ticket title inherited an older ticket I had not submitted, I’ve updated it, sorry.

I copied the site folder from c:\users\user\Local Sites\site1 to the desktop, zipped that folder, deleted the site in Local, imported the zip from desktop, and received an error “Please try again with a compatible zip file” right after the message “importing database”.

If I check the folder on the desktop there is only “my.cnf” (1kb) in conf/mysql, no SQL files, same as every other live site.


Can you do a manual import like this and see if that works?

Hi @Nick-B

There are no SQL files in the folder on the desktop copied from c:\users\user\Local Sites\site1

Is this for the site you were already working on? Or for the new site you tried to spin up?

Already working on, it is not a critical development site, it is replaceable, so not a big loss that the sql file was not found.

All sites are now working without any errors, so the error looks to have been temporary.

Thanks for your time @Nick-B
