Importer gets stuck after setting up app, con and logs folders

Am using Local by Flywheel v. 1.4.1 on El Capitan.

Import sequence stops at setting up the folders as mentioned in the subject.

My error log file is attached.local-by-flywheel.log (194.8 KB)

BTW - is their a way for me to do a manual migration? Doesn’t seem like there is.


To perform a manual migration you can do the following:

  1. Create a new site
  2. Remove all of the files in app/public
  3. Go the Database tab for that site and connect to the database using your preferred tool.
  4. Drop all of the tables
  5. (Optional) Save the site as a Blueprint at this point so you have a Blank Blueprint
  6. Copy in the files to app/public
  7. Use the database tool to import any SQL files you have
  8. If the domain is new do the following:
    • Right-click on the site in the sidebar and go to `Open Site SSH
    • Enter wp search-replace --precise --all-tables-with-prefix "//OLDDOMAIN" "//NEWDOMAIN"

After that, you should be set.

Hi Clay

Thanks for this.

I was thinking of doing this (or something like it) and if need be I will give it a try.
