Lavarel php 8.1

I need to install lavarel using local. Unfortunately it requires php 8.1. How can I upgrade to this version?

Issue Summary

One or two sentence summary of the issue.

Troubleshooting Questions

  • Does this happen for all sites in Local, or just one in particular?

  • Are you able to create a new, plain WordPress site in Local and access it in a Browser?


Describe the steps that others can take to replicate this issue. If you have screenshots that can help clarify what is happening, please include them!

System Details

  • Which version of Local is being used?

  • What Operating System (OS) and OS version is being used?

    • For example: macOS Catalina or Windows 10 Professional
  • Attach the Local Log. See this Help Doc for instructions on how to do so:

Security Reminder

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.

Hello @support_tony - welcome to the Local Community! :wave:

Thank you for your question.

At this time, Local only ships with up to 8.0.1 but you can follow along with this thread for PHP 8.1 updates:

Thank you!

Thanks for the reply. Can you tell me when there will be an update to php 8.1?

Hi @support_tony - although I can’t tell you an exact date, I can tell you it is top of mind for the Local team!

Be sure to follow along with that thread for updates :smile:
