I did a fresh installation of Local (Silicon vesrion) on MacOS Ventura, and can’t get it to work. I can’t create a new site as the app can’t modify the hosts file. When I click on the Local notification that requires permissions nothing happens.
Does this happen for all sites in Local, or just one in particular?
Local can’t create a new site.
Are you able to create a new, plain WordPress site in Local and access it in a Browser?
To replicate, install Local by Flywheel Apple Silicon Version 6.7.1+6369 on MacOS Ventura 13.3.1 and try to create a new site.
I’m having this exact problem. Same system specs, same error messages, same logs.
I’ve been through a bunch of the support topics on this. I’ve adjusted the permissions of my hosts file, cleared the DNS cache, even manually entered the hosts entries that Local wants to create, but nothing has worked.
Hey @zulu, thanks for your reply and the link to that post. I just tried your solution. I installed Node 14.20.1 via nvm (already had nvm installed), but it still didn’t work. I then tried installing Rosetta 2 via the command line as in the linked post, and I am now able to pull my site to my machine. Downloading the files now. I’m not sure if it was only Rosetta 2 that solved it or if it was the combination of the Node version and Rosetta 2. Will try pulling the site again with a different Node version later.
Howdy y’all, just an FYI that Rosetta 2 is required for Local’s Apple Silicon build due to the Nginx and MySQL Lighting Services compiled on the Intel architecture. We’re working on getting this updated in a future release.
I’m having this probably as described in the OP. After unpacking a 40 GB ZIP file, the app bailed. (So, each time I test a solution, I’ll have to unzip it each time…)
Rosetta 2 is installed and I don’t understand how Local could run on my M1 without it.
What am I missing?
Hi @danorton - thanks for using Local. I’m not sure if this is the same issue, but we can dig in.
Are you able to create brand new sites in Local (not importing)? Is Local able to succesfully create the site? You can share your Local logs with us too and we can get a better idea of what is happening. Here is a link to finding those - Retrieve Local’s Log File - Local
