Errors After Updating

What issue or error are you experiencing?

I had to manually update by downloading the dmg file due to an issue updating the existing Local App, When I spin up new websites inside flywheel I get a port conflict error.

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

System Details

  • Local Version:

  • Operating System (OS) and OS version:
    Mac OS Montery 12.6

Local Logs

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.

Could this be because I effectively have 2 installs of Local now, Im apprehensive to delete one of them and loose all my work.

Hi @JoeySmith

If there is a port conflict occurring you could check and address it with these steps:

  • Stop all sites that are running in Local

  • Force quit Local

  • (If using Mac) Run the command lsof -nP -iTCP -sTCP:LISTEN

What you’ll be looking for here is to see when sites are stopped and Local is properly shut down if there are still programs running on ports 80 and 443. These may be conflicting with Local or the system may be reporting Local is still running.

Once you run that command you should see a list of listening ports. If you see a particular program making use of those ports, you can then kill that process by running sudo kill -9 XXX where XXX is the PID number of that process.

There are also some more details around this and other troubleshooting steps at this link if needed: Stopping Whatever Is Listening On Port 80.

If you need to back up sites for any further troubleshooting, you can use our Cloud Backups add on - Cloud Backups

There are other ways to back up your sites as well. More here:

If you need to transfer Local sites from one place to another, you can simply export and import them to get them all in one place. More here:
