Troubleshooting Questions

  • Does this happen for all sites in Local, or just one in particular?
    Happens to all that use php 8

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


Create a new Site, use nginx, php 8, mysql 8.0.16. Right click on the new site and login to shell. Now any wp command fails because of the above mentioned error.
