I am new to Local coming from Desktopserver and I am currently doing some simple tests with it and running into an issue.
What issue or error are you experiencing?
When I create a site I get the following warning
The site seems to work and I am not sure if this warning is an issue? If anyone knows if it is an issue and how to solve it please let me know.
However, when I go and delete a site I get the same warning and when I look at where local installs the site it is still there. The folder with all subfolders and files are still there. Local doesn’t delete it.
I did untick the Read only option of the host file.
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.
This is a completely normal part of Local. The prompt you’re seeing is to allow it access to the Hosts File in order to add/remove/edit files. If you’ve updated it so it’s not Read Only you should be able to proceed again. If you’re still having trouble you’ll want to make sure nothing is preventing Local such as the below:
Generally it’s a security or permissions issue along the line preventing Local from accessing/removing what it needs to. Are you running other developer applications simultaneously? That could also cause similar issues. Apps like MAMP, XAMPP, or Docker for example.
No nothing like that. The only things I am running in the background that start with Windows are:
Koofr (similar to Dropbox)
CaptureWizPro (a screenshot tool)
ClipboardFusion (a clipboard manager)
Acronis Cyber Protect Home (a backup manager) with Active protection against ransomeware turned off
Pop Peeper (an e-mail manager).
Could it be Windows firewall itself that’s causing the poblems?
