Local not pulling WPEngine site on Ubuntu

Issue Summary

I have Local set up on Ubuntu. I have connected to WPEngine with the API credentials. The message says that the site has successfully downloaded, but there are no WordPress files in the local site folder. Further, there is not database. yes, I did check the box to download the database.

Troubleshooting Questions

  • Does this happen for all sites in Local, or just one in particular?
    The only one I have. This is a new installation of Local.

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


This is specific to this WPEngine installation, so not directly reproducible, but I have added a couple of screenshots.

System Details

  • Which version of Local is being used?

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

  • Attach the Local Log. See this Help Doc for instructions on how to do so:

I’m having the same exact issue on Manjaro. Tried to reconnect to WP Engine, but the issue persists.

Same here. No response from LocalWP yet.

Any updates? I have same problem.

No, not a peep. I’m only going to use this for spinning up local site for testing. The WPEngine integration isn’t there yet and there is zero response from the authors.

Disappointing considering the time I sank into it.

I trying old versions. I’ll post here if it’s successful

Installing older versions didn’t help.
But I found a solution for myself. Perhaps this will help you too.

  1. I created a new backup
  2. Downloaded it
  3. Made a zip archive import to locale

I was given some warnings, but I turned them off with this

ini_set('error_reporting', E_ALL );
define('WP_DEBUG', false);
define('WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY', false);
