Local is unable to install wordpress

Issue Summary

Newly installed local, seems to be unable to install wordpress when I create a project.

Troubleshooting Questions

  • Does this happen for all sites in Local, or just one in particular?
    Any and all projects I create.
  • Are you able to create a new, plain WordPress site in Local and access it in a Browser?
    No, wordpress will actually not be installed, so the site doesn’t actually exist other than by name in the local app.


Launch Local (as admin)
Create a new project.

System Details

  • Which version of Local is being used?

The latest one

  • What Operating System (OS) and OS version is being used?
    • For example: macOS Catalina or Windows 10 Professional

Windows 10 Home 64

Hi @Randaras

Usually a Hosts Entry error means something is blocking Local. Do you have any antivirus, security, or firewall applications that could be blocking Local? Are you running other developer applications simultaneously? That could also cause similar issues. Apps like MAMP, XAMPP, or Docker for example.
