Isn't local supposed to be quicker?

Man, i pulled a site to local (im using divi) and its super slow, and often times pages just time out when trying to use the backend. I’m using default settings if that helps.

Hey @clint2166

Local is usually quicker for developing sites, but occasionally sites that have a lot of heavy client-side functionality (like Divi’s editor) can slow things down.

Sometimes this has to do with how the computer handles networking on the localhost. Can you try enabling IPv6 Loopback from the “Preferences > Advanced” tab within Local and then start using the site again?

Sometimes that setting can help speed up the communication between the client-side scripts and the Local server.
