What’s New in Local 6.2.0


  • Local’s Preferred environment when creating new sites has been updated to PHP 7.4.1. Older versions of PHP are still available under Custom environments.

  • A dynamic outage banner has been added to the Support tab within Local. It will only appear when the development team needs to communicate issues with underlying infrastructure that broadly affects Local users.

  • A direct link to the WP Engine portal’s API credentials has been added to the Connect modal for customers who connect to WP Engine hosting.

  • Local’s services will no longer start on port 10080 to avoid security conflicts with most browsers.

  • Local’s certificates and code signing have been updated to WPEngine, Inc., consistent with other products in the WP Engine family.

Bug fixes

  • Using Adminer on Linux works again for all versions of PHP. Previously, Adminer errored out on certain PHP versions.

  • Resolved an issue that was causing Local error logs to be unreadable, making troubleshooting difficult for support and users.

  • Resolved an issue where attempting to enable a Live Link on a site that had been cloned would result in a 500 error.

  • Resolved several UI bugs within the MagicSync viewer:

    • Incorrectly displaying files changed between 12PM and 1PM as AM

    • Incorrectly showing new remote files as deleted when pulling to Local

    • Being unable to collapse deleted local files when pushing to a remote host
