I'm getting a 502 error on my site

I recently worked on a Divi and closed it only to say I had a local host problem with my site. The next move I made was to uninstall Local to re-install it on another hard drive. After I did that, I got a 502 error. How do i fix this so I won’t lose the work? Also, I keep having issues with creating a new site. The hard drive that I’m using has 700 gigs. I don’t understand why I am limited with this.

Also, here is the database files ,

Hello @scarecrow202 - welcome to the Local community. :wave:

Have you made an export of the Local site? That way you have a backup of your work.

Here’s how to do that:


If you do that, are you able to re-import that exported version in your new Local?

I would also recommend checking out this forum thread - I’m wondering if somewhere along the way the site URL was updated (either in the WordPress settings or within Local?)

Let me know if either of these gets things working again,

I have it, but I have noticed it’s for all my sites. I didn’t do a backup when I did a backup and tried to re-upload it.

All of my sites are saying this. It’s funny; I was working on my site last night.

This is the second or third time I have had this issue, plus alot of viruses from local.

This is what I’m getting from the shell.

This is what I get when I try back it up again!
