Lost local website after accidently pulling from Flywheel

Issue Summary

I accidentally “pulled from Flywheel” into Local, overriding my complete design on a new website. I can’t access the local website now that I have been working on because it was overrose with the website from Flywheel. How do I get it back? Please help!

It’s possible that the Local changes have been lost – When Pulling a site down Local overwrites the DB if you check the “Include Database” option.

One thing you might try is leaving Local open and navigating to the site’s folder. There might be a file called local.sql within the ~/Local Sites/sitename/app/sql/ folder. This file would be an export of the database whenever the site was last stopped cleanly.

Using that sql file, you can try restoring the site using the site files by following the steps outlined in the “Restoring From Only Local Site files” section of this help doc:
