Local does not connect to Flywheel after log in

Issue Summary

After logging in to Flywheel, Local continues showing the screen to log in to Flywheel/WPEngine

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?


  • Click “Connect” on Local’s left side menu
  • Click “Log in to your Host”
  • Click “Log In” for Flywheel
  • In the browser, I authenticate my account and then click “Log in to [username]”
  • Click “Open Local” from the dialog box.
  • I’m taken back to the local app, but it still displays the screen to Log in to Flywheel.
