I need help. I deleted the original Local site already and have the Exported zip file. But when I upload it to a new wordpress site via Local… it’s empty but all the contents are on the ZIP file. Can someone please help me. I need to recover the project. I badly need support… here is the file (when imported it’s empty): timson-securities-inc.zip - Google Drive
Hello, it was included on the link file I posted here. And for the “what I’m seeing part” it’s a new site with no content on it. When I check the exported wp-content all my uploaded files are there… but not showing on my wordpress site
In taking a look at the zip file, I see your images in the app/public/wp-content/uploads directory, but the database dump file (app/sql/local.sql) is essentially empty (e.g. no attachment entries in the wp_posts table for your uploaded images). The timestamp at the end of the dump file is “2022-09-05 16:31:41”, which pre-dates the timestamps of the images in the uploads directory.
My understanding is that Local generates the local.sql file when the user stops a site through the Local app. There is a local.sql.tmp file in the app/sql directory of the zip that is from 2022-11-14 – maybe Local tried to perform a dump at that time and failed.
Unfortunately, I don’t think you’re going to be able to get much from this zip file. Do you have any others for the site?
Thank you so much for checking. Appreciate it. Unfortunately this is the only backup we had from Local. Ugh I’m frustrated and sad that Local is not that helpful at all and this things happens. Better search for another app.
