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.

Hi there @FredZugs - welcome to the Local community! :wave:

Is there a reason you are not using the latest version of Local? I might recommend updating and then trying again.

Here are the releases:


I am using the latest version of local, It worked after I changed the php version to 7.4
