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 @adityasharma

If you create a new, blank site in Local can you select the Custom option and change the PHP version to PHP 8.2? If you can do that, then you can use the Local Connect cloud icon in the bottom right-hand corner to pull your WPE install into an “Existing” install instead of creating a new one. That will keep the PHP version on 8.2.
