    I just created one site.

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
      Windows 10
  • 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, @ECM - welcome to the Local community! :wave:

Thank you for your question, can you please provide a little more information about your configuration for this Local site?

Specifically, it would be helpful to know:

  • PHP version
  • Web server
  • Database

Also, are you able to upload any plugins (have you tried anything, not from Astra?)?

Let’s start there,
