Local doesn't remember Sites upon exiting

Issue Summary

After completing the installation of Local and importing a site, the site works fine, but once I close Local it basically doesn’t show it on the Site tab when I restart Local.

Troubleshooting Questions

  • Does this happen for all sites in Local, or just one in particular?
    All. Already tried complete uninstall and reinstall. No success.

  • Are you able to create a new, plain WordPress site in Local and access it in a Browser?
    Well, I can create or import Sites without any problem, but once I close Local, they are basically gone. I mean it knows that the site is there because I cannot reimport it again, but it doesn’t show up on the Site tab.
