Just Upgraded to Latest Version of Local and Now Get 500 Internal Server Error

What issue or error are you experiencing?

I’ve been using Local now for several months and just upgraded to Version 8.0.1+6490. Now, when I make changes to my website and try to publish, I get a 500 Internal Server Error. I’ve made no other changes and have not installed any new plugins. This happened immediately after I upgraded.

What steps can be taken to replicate the issue?

My only plugins are Elementor, Elementor Pro, WPForms Lite, and WP Mail SMTP. I tried deactivating these sequentially, except for Elementor, but nothing worked. I also resaved my Permalinks without making any changes, as directed by a YouTube video I watched on this.

I’m on a MacBook Pro using Ventura 13.6

I’m stumped (and also new at this). Is there a way to revert back to the version of Local that worked for me? Any other suggestions, please? Thank you.

Sorry that you encountered this, @PLD!

Have you tried restarting Local or your device after the upgrade? (I’m on Ventura too and cannot reproduce the 500 error with Local 8.0.1 so far.)

If that doesn’t help, before you downgrade, please could you share your Local Logs with us so that we can investigate? You can get a zip of your logs by clicking “Download Local Log” from the “Support” tab in Local. See this help doc for more information:

Once you’ve done that, you can downgrade by following the steps here:
