Help with getting started

Issue Summary

I cannot seem to get started with using LocalWP. I recently downloaded my database backup from Dreamhost and after a very long time and restart was finally able to see my site in LocalWP, but now it will not establish a database connection (do I need to create a new database?) and will not follow the steps I’ve completed to manually approve the SSL certificate.

Troubleshooting Questions

Is there someway to get more support outside of the standard help docs with troubleshooting for using LocalWP?

System Details

Local Version 6.3.1+5826

  • What Operating System (OS) and OS version is being used?
    MacOS Monterey Version 12.3, 2.3 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5 (2.1 KB)

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.
