Hello @hibranda - first of all, welcome to the Local community! :wave:

Have you had a chance to review this help doc about how to import a site into Local?

You’ll need a wp-content folder as well as a sql database dump for it to properly import.

If you have the proper files you can just drag and drop the zip file right onto Local.

Let me know if that helps,
