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 @lukaszk

Are you running other developer applications simultaneously? That could also cause similar issues. Apps like MAMP, XAMPP, or Docker for example.

Do you have any antivirus, security, or firewall applications that could be blocking Local?

Hi @Nick-B,
I don’t have any other developer applications ruuning on my computer. When it comes to antivirus and security programmes - I uninstalled them all especially for that reason - just to make sure nothing causes issues.
I also changed the properties of the localhost file on my drive (exactly in a way shown in the link you provided me with) and my site on Local still doesn’t work. However this time I get slightly different error message (enclosed below). Is there any other way I can come over this trouble?

Hi @lukaszk

There is a similar thread that I just responded to. There could be a few different reasons for this error. If you’re sure that antivirus is not in the way there might still be a permissions issue, full disk, or corrupted disk causing trouble. Some more details are here:
