Import gets hung up on database

Issue Summary

I was working on a local website on a laptop. I exported it and I’m trying to import it to a new laptop. The import gets hung up on the database import for more than 40 minutes. A pop up comes up in the bottom corner about requesting admin access to hosts file, but it doesn’t give me an option to give permission.

Windows 11. Latest version of Local WP that I downloaded again today.

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 @deeLT! Do you have any antivirus, security, or firewall applications that could be blocking Local? There may be something blocking it from connecting.
